The Consumer Price Index (CPI) program from the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases scheduled data updates on changes in the prices paid by urban consumers for a representative basket of goods and services.
By setting an update time and date, everyone is able to get the latest inflation information at once, with no one receiving an advantage that could help them in the markets or elsewhere.
Looking at the table below, which offers upcoming release dates through November 2015, notice that the CPI information released on a given day always covers data from the previous month.
