The chart and table of annual averages for rates of inflation displays yearly results from 2009-2019. 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 with BLS data for April on May 10, 2019. The next update is scheduled for June 12, 2019, which will be the fifth (May) reading for this year.
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.
