Annual Averages for Rate of Inflation
The chart and table of annual averages for rates of inflation displays the yearly averages from 2003-2013 from the monthly published Consumer Price Index. The table was last updated on May 16, 2013. It will be updated again with newly released US inflation data when it becomes available on June 18, 2013.
Generally, more interest — at least what you hear or see through the media — is directed toward current inflation rates instead of annual averages shown below.
For 2013, the most recent monthly data (12-month based) is used in the chart and table.
