Calculate the rate of price inflation between two dates using one of our inflation rate calculators.
Note: if you bookmarked this page and are looking for the "Inflation Rate Calculator" we renamed it cumulative inflation calculator to more accurately describe its purpose.
Here at InflationData.com we have several inflation calculators to choose from. If you are simply interested in the difference in how much something cost in a previous year and how much it would cost now (or at any other point since 1913) you can use the basic inflation calculator from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
If however, you would like to know the total cumulative inflation between two specific months at any point between 1913 and the present use the Cumulative Inflation Calculator.
This calculator uses the Consumer Price Index published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics which is the most closely watched indicator for inflation in the U.S. It can be considered the "government's key inflation barometer".
If you know the inflation rate and would like to know how much something would cost after increasing in price by that amount of inflation use our "How much it would cost after Inflation Calculator"
