This tool displays the time value of money based on historical inflation and CPI data.
This inflation calculator measures the purchasing power of money over time based on official CPI (Consumer Price Index) data published regularly. The result indicates the change in cost of buying the same goods and services between the chosen time periods.
To start, select a country or location. This will pre-select the other available fields based on the data available. Enter an amount, select the start and end time periods, and click 'Calculate'.
The database behind this calculator is updated at least once a month with official data. Most countries publish updates within the first 2 weeks of each month but in some cases it takes more time. Monthly updates make the most recent months and quarters available as inputs. Updates can also slightly affect the result of annual calculations to the current year, which becomes more accurate although the difference for long time periods is usually insignificant.
While every effort is made to ensure data quality and to deliver accurate results, the Inflation Calculator is intended to use for general informational purposes only. The results produced should not be considered as “official” and users should exercise their own care when interpreting and using them. All the information on this tool is provided in good faith, but there’s no warranty regarding the accuracy, validity or completeness of data and the results displayed.
