The chart and table of annual averages for rates of inflation displays yearly results from 2011-2021. This information is made available by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and it is published every month in the Consumer Price Index. The chart and table were last updated April 13, 2021 with BLS data for March. The next update is scheduled for May 12, 2021, which will be the fourth (April) reading for 2021.
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.
