Ft100 in 1981

Ft5,087.04 in 2023

The inflation rate in Hungary between 1981 and 2023 was 4,987.04%, which translates into a total increase of Ft4,987.04. This means that **100 forints in 1981 are equivalent to 5,087.04 forints in 2023**. In other words, the purchasing power of Ft100 in 1981 equals Ft5,087.04 in 2023. The average annual inflation rate between these periods was 9.81%.

The following chart depicts the equivalence of Ft100 due to compound inflation and CPI changes. All values are equivalent in terms of purchasing power, which means that for each year the same goods or services could be bought with the indicated amount of money.

All calculations are performed in the local currency (HUF) and using 6 decimal digits. Results show only up to 2 decimal digits to favour readability. Inflation data is provided by governments and international institutions on a monthly basis.

The following table contains relevant indicators:

Indicator | Value |
---|---|

Cumulative inflation from 1981 to 2023 | 4,987.04% |

Avg. Annual inflation from 1981 to 2023 | 9.81% |

CPI 1981 | 3.13 |

CPI 2023 | 159.22 |

There are several ways to calculate the time value of money. Depending on the data available, results can be obtained by using the Consumer Price Index (CPI) formula or the compound interest formula.

When we have both the start and end years, we can use the following formula:

Value_{t} =Value_{0} ×

CPI_{t}CPI_{0}

To obtain the values equivalent in buying power between 1981 and 2023, use the corresponding CPI values:

Value_{2023}

=Value_{1981} ×

CPI_{2023}CPI_{1981}

=Ft 100 ×

159.223.13

≈Ft5,087.04

Given that money changes with time as a result of an inflation rate that acts as compound interest, we can use the following formula: **FV = PV × (1 + i) ^{n}**, where:

- FV: Future Value
- PV: Present Value
- i: Interest rate (inflation)
- n: Number of times the interest is compounded (i.e. # of years)

In this case, the future value represents the final amount obtained after applying the inflation rate to our initial value. In other words, it indicates how much are Ft100 worth today. There are 42 years between 1981 and 2023 and the average inflation rate was 9.807%. Therefore, we can resolve the formula like this:

Value_{2023}

=PV × (1 + i)^{n}

=Ft100 × (1 + 0.09807)^{42}

≈Ft5,087.04
