Consumer Price Index

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) measures changes in the price of goods and services over time. Inflation is indicated by the growth of CPI, which helps assess changes to the cost of living. An individual's ability to buy goods and services (also known as purchasing power) is affected by changes in income and prices.
