Title: Cost-of-Living Calculator

Provider: NewsEngin

Subject Heading/s: Cost and standard of living--United States

LC Class: HD6977

Reference Category: Calculators

Description: "This gizmo uses the historical Consumer Price Index for urban consumers (CPI-U) to convert dollar values between different years. This allows you to compare the real buying power of historical dollar amounts, adjusted for inflation. For example, the program will tell you that for the U.S. overall, $100 in 1979 bought as much as $199 did in 1993 (that's using the "U.S. City Average" for "All Items.")

You can perform the inflation adjustment for any of the categories or regions listed below. If you're dealing with national figures, it's probably safest for you to use the basic " All Items/U.S. City Average" calculator ."
