kr100 in 1956
kr1,548.79 in 2021

The inflation rate in Norway between 1956 and 2021 was 1,448.79%, which translates into a total increase of kr1,448.79. This means that 100 kroner in 1956 are equivalent to 1,548.79 kroner in 2021.

Inflation timeline in Norway (1956 - 2021)

The following chart depicts the equivalence of kr100 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 (NOK) 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:

How to calculate the time value of money with inflation data?

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.

Using the CPI formula

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

Valuet =Value0 ×
CPIt/CPI0

To obtain the values equivalent in buying power between 1956 and 2021, use the corresponding CPI values:

Value2021
=Value1956 ×
CPI2021/CPI1956
=kr 100 ×
116.09/7.5
kr1,548.79

Alternative: Using the compound interest formula

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 kr100 worth today. There are 65 years between 1956 and 2021 and the average inflation rate was 4.3056%. Therefore, we can resolve the formula like this:

Value2021
=PV × (1 + i)n
=kr100 × (1 + 0.043056)65
kr1,548.79
