Annual Averages for Rates of Inflation

The chart and table of annual averages for rates of inflation displays the yearly averages from 2006-2016. This information is made available by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and its monthly published Consumer Price Index. The chart and table were last updated with BLS data for March on April 14, 2016. The next update is scheduled for May 17, 2016, which will be the fourth (April) reading for 2016.

Generally, more interest — at least what you hear or see through news media — is directed toward current inflation rates instead of annual averages shown below.

In 2016, the most recent monthly data (12-month based) will be used in the chart and table.
