About Consumer Price Index

The Consumer Price Index is a statistic calculated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that is meant to capture "cost of living" for citizens of the United States by measuring changes in purchasing power. It is released monthly, usually 2-3 after the end of the reporting period.
