Annual Averages for Rates of Inflation

The chart and table of annual averages for rates of inflation displays the yearly averages from 2004-2014. This information is made available by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and its monthly published Consumer Price Index. The chart and table was last updated with December data on January 16, 2015. The next update is scheduled for February 26, 2015, which will be the first (January) reading for 2015.

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 2015, the most recent monthly data (12-month based) will be used in the chart and table.
