Consumer Price Index – Release Schedule (2021-2022)

The Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes a schedule of monthly release dates for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and associated data on consumer inflation. The CPI measures changes in what American consumers pay for everyday items ranging from coffee to cars.

By setting a release date and update time, 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 release schedule below, which offers upcoming dates through December 2022, notice that the CPI information released on a given day always covers data from the previous month.
