                  Consumer Price Index - January 2011

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased
 0.4 percent in January on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S.
 Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months,
 the all items index increased 1.6 percent before seasonal adjustment.
 
 Increases in indexes for energy commodities and for food accounted
 for over two thirds of the all items increase. The indexes for
 gasoline and fuel oil both increased in January, continuing their
 recent strong upward trend. The index for food at home posted its
 largest increase in over two years with all six major grocery store
 food group indexes rising.
 
 The index for all items less food and energy also rose in January.
 The indexes for apparel, shelter, airline fares, and recreation all
 posted increases. In contrast, the indexes for new vehicles and for
 used cars and trucks declined in January.
 
 Over the last 12 months, the food index has risen 1.8 percent with
 the food at home index up 2.1 percent; both 12-month changes are the
 highest since 2009. The energy index has increased 7.3 percent over
 the last 12 months, with the gasoline index up 13.4 percent. The
 index for all items less food and energy has risen 1.0 percent.

 Consumer Price Index Data for January 2011

 Food
 
 The food index rose 0.5 percent in January. The food at home index
 increased 0.7 percent, the largest increase since 2008. All six major
 grocery store food groups posted increases. The index for
 nonalcoholic beverages increased the most, rising 1.5 percent, with
 the indexes for carbonated drinks and coffee both rising sharply. The
 fruits and vegetables index increased 1.3 percent with the index for
 fresh vegetables up 2.1 percent. The indexes for meats, poultry,
 fish, and eggs and for cereals and bakery products increased 0.9
 percent and 0.8 percent, respectively. The indexes for dairy and
 related products and for other food at home posted slight increases.
 Over the past 12 months, the index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs
 has risen 6.2 percent with the other grocery store food group indexes
 posting smaller increases. The index for food away from home rose 0.2
 percent in January and has risen 1.5 percent over the past 12 months.
 
 Energy
 
 The energy index continued its recent string of increases, rising 2.1
 percent in January. The gasoline index rose 3.5 percent and has
 increased seven months in a row. (Before seasonal adjustment,
 gasoline prices rose 3.8 percent in January.) The index for household
 energy declined in January, falling 0.2 percent. A 6.8 percent
 increase in the index for fuel oil was more than offset by a 1.2
 percent decrease in the natural gas index and a 0.5 percent decline
 in the electricity index. The indexes for gasoline and fuel oil have
 risen significantly over the last 12 months, but the index for
 natural gas has declined 6.4 percent.
 
 
 All items less food and energy
 
 The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.2 percent in
 January after increasing 0.1 percent in each of the previous two
 months. The shelter index rose 0.1 percent in January, with the rent
 index increasing 0.2 percent and the index for owners' equivalent
 rent rising 0.1 percent. The apparel index, which increased 0.1
 percent in December, rose 1.0 percent in January. The index for
 airline fares increased for the fifth month in a row, rising 2.2
 percent in January. The medical care index rose slightly, edging up
 0.1 percent, with the medical care commodities index increasing 0.5
 percent while the index for medical care services declined 0.1
 percent. The recreation index turned up in January, rising 0.2
 percent after declining 0.2 percent in December, as did the index for
 household furnishings and operations, which increased 0.1 percent in
 January after declining in each of the four prior months. In contrast
 to these increases, the index for new vehicles fell 0.1 percent in
 January and the index for used cars and trucks declined 0.3 percent.
 
 The index for all items less food and energy increased 1.0 percent
 over the last 12 months. The shelter index has gone up 0.6 percent
 over that time period with the rent index up 1.0 percent. The index
 for airline fares has risen 9.8 percent and the indexes for medical
 care, for used cars and trucks, and for tobacco also increased. The
 apparel index is unchanged from a year ago, while the indexes for
 household furnishings and operations and for recreation have
 declined.
 
 
 
 
 Not seasonally adjusted CPI measures
 
 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased
 1.6 percent over the last 12 months to an index level of 220.223
 (1982-84=100). For the month, the index increased 0.5 percent prior
 to seasonal adjustment.
 
 The Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers
 (CPI-W) increased 1.8 percent over the last 12 months to an index
 level of 216.400 (1982-84=100). For the month, the index rose 0.5
 percent prior to seasonal adjustment.
 
 The Chained Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U)
 increased 1.4 percent over the last 12 months. For the month, the
 index increased 0.5 percent on a not seasonally adjusted basis.
 Please note that the indexes for the post-2009 period are subject to
 revision.
 
 The Consumer Price Index for February 2011 is scheduled to be
 released on Thursday, March 17, 2011, at 8:30 a.m. (EDT).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Effective with this release of CPI data, the following series have been re-titled:
    	Recreation services has become Other recreation services
    	Gas (piped) and electricity has become Energy services
    	Canned fish and seafood has become Shelf stable fish and seafood

 The Recreation services index did not include all services under the
 major group Recreation, specifically video and audio related services,
 pet services, and photography and film services are excluded.  The new
 title, Other recreation services, reflects these exclusions.

 Gas (piped) and electricity has been presented as Energy services in Table A
 of the CPI News Release since August 2009.  At that time, the format text of
 the News Release was updated to focus on Food, Energy, and All items less
 food and energy instead of the major groups (Food, Housing, Apparel,
 Transportation, Medical care, Education and communication, Recreation, and
 Other goods and services).  The title has been changed in the remainder of
 the publication tables in January 2011 to improve consistency.

 The title for Canned fish and seafood has changed to Shelf stable fish and
 seafood to better reflect current packaging methods.

 C-CPI-U Index Revisions
 
 As scheduled, effective with release of data for January 2011, the
 Chained Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U) has
 undergone its annual revision. Because the current expenditure data
 required for the calculation of the C-CPI-U are available only with a
 time lag, the index is issued first in preliminary form, using the
 latest available expenditure data at the time of publication, and is
 subject to two subsequent revisions. Therefore, C-CPI-U indexes for
 the 12 months of 2009 will be issued in final form - employing
 monthly expenditure weights from 2009. Values for the 12 months of
 2010 will be revised and issued as interim, using expenditure weights
 from the 2007-2008 period.  Calculation of the initial value of the
 January 2011 C-CPI-U index, and all subsequent months in 2011, will
 also be based upon 2007-2008 expenditure weights.
 
 For more information on the C-CPI-U, contact Rob Cage by telephone at
 (202) 691-6959 or by electronic mail at Cage.Rob@bls.gov .

 Brief Explanation of the CPI
      
 The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure of the average change in
 prices over time of goods and services purchased by households.  The
 Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes CPIs for two population groups:
 (1) the CPI for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W),
 which covers households of wage earners and clerical workers that
 comprise approximately 32 percent of the total population and (2) the
 CPI for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) and the Chained CPI for All Urban
 Consumers (C-CPI-U), which cover approximately 87 percent of the
 total population and include in addition to wage earners and clerical
 worker households, groups such as professional, managerial, and
 technical workers, the self-employed, short-term workers, the
 unemployed, and retirees and others not in the labor force.
      
 The CPIs are based on prices of food, clothing, shelter, and fuels,
 transportation fares, charges for doctors' and dentists' services,
 drugs, and other goods and services that people buy for day-to-day
 living.  Prices are collected each month in 87 urban areas across the
 country from about 4,000 housing units and approximately 26,000
 retail establishments-department stores, supermarkets, hospitals,
 filling stations, and other types of stores and service
 establishments.  All taxes directly associated with the purchase and
 use of items are included in the index.  Prices of fuels and a few
 other items are obtained every month in all 87 locations.  Prices of
 most other commodities and services are collected every month in the
 three largest geographic areas and every other month in other areas.
 Prices of most goods and services are obtained by personal visits or
 telephone calls of the Bureau's trained representatives.
      
 In calculating the index, price changes for the various items in each
 location are averaged together with weights, which represent their
 importance in the spending of the appropriate population group.
 Local data are then combined to obtain a U.S. city average.  For the
 CPI-U and CPI-W separate indexes are also published by size of city,
 by region of the country, for cross-classifications of regions and
 population-size classes, and for 27 local areas.  Area indexes do not
 measure differences in the level of prices among cities; they only
 measure the average change in prices for each area since the base
 period.  For the C-CPI-U data are issued only at the national level.
 It is important to note that the CPI-U and CPI-W are considered final
 when released, but the C-CPI-U is issued in preliminary form and
 subject to two annual revisions.
      
 The index measures price change from a designed reference date.  For
 the CPI-U and the CPI-W the reference base is 1982-84 equals 100.
 The reference base for the C-CPI-U is December 1999 equals 100.  An
 increase of 16.5 percent from the reference base, for example, is
 shown as 116.500.  This change can also be expressed in dollars as
 follows:  the price of a base period market basket of goods and
 services in the CPI has risen from $10 in 1982-84 to $11.65.

 Note on Sampling Error in the Consumer Price Index
                                   
 The CPI is a statistical estimate that is subject to sampling error
 because it is based upon a sample of retail prices and not the
 complete universe of all prices.  BLS calculates and publishes
 estimates of the 1-month, 2-month, 6-month and 12-month percent
 change standard errors annually, for the CPI-U.  These standard error
 estimates can be used to construct confidence intervals for
 hypothesis testing.  For example, the estimated standard error of the
 1 month percent change is 0.03 percent for the U.S. All Items
 Consumer Price Index.  This means that if we repeatedly sample from
 the universe of all retail prices using the same methodology, and
 estimate a percentage change for each sample, then 95% of these
 estimates would be within 0.06 percent of the 1 month percentage
 change based on all retail prices.  For example, for a 1-month change
 of 0.2 percent in the All Items CPI for All Urban Consumers, we are
 95 percent confident that the actual percent change based on all
 retail prices would fall between 0.14 and 0.26 percent.  For the
 latest data, including information on how to use the estimates of
 standard error, see "Variance Estimates for Price Changes in the
 Consumer Price Index, January-December 2010".  These data are
 available on the CPI home page (http://www.bls.gov/cpi), or by using
 the following link http://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpivar2010.pdf
      
 
 Calculating Index Changes
 
 Movements of the indexes from one month to another are usually
 expressed as percent changes rather than changes in index points,
 because index point changes are affected by the level of the index in
 relation to its base period while percent changes are not.  The
 example below illustrates the computation of index point and percent
 changes.
      
  Percent changes for 3-month and 6-month periods are expressed as
 annual rates and are computed according to the standard formula for
 compound growth rates.  These data indicate what the percent change
 would be if the current rate were maintained for a 12-month period.

 A Note on Seasonally Adjusted and Unadjusted Data
 
 Because price data are used for different purposes by different
 groups, the Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes seasonally adjusted
 as well as unadjusted changes each month.
 
 For analyzing general price trends in the economy, seasonally
 adjusted changes are usually preferred since they eliminate the
 effect of changes that normally occur at the same time and in about
 the same magnitude every year--such as price movements resulting from
 changing climatic conditions, production cycles, model changeovers,
 holidays, and sales.
 
 The unadjusted data are of primary interest to consumers concerned
 about the prices they actually pay.  Unadjusted data also are used
 extensively for escalation purposes.  Many collective bargaining
 contract agreements and pension plans, for example, tie compensation
 changes to the Consumer Price Index before adjustment for seasonal
 variation.
 
 Seasonal factors used in computing the seasonally adjusted indexes
 are derived by the X-12-ARIMA Seasonal Adjustment Method.  Seasonally
 adjusted indexes and seasonal factors are computed annually.  Each
 year, the last 5 years of seasonally adjusted data are revised.  Data
 from January 2006 through December 2010 were replaced in January
 2011.  Exceptions to the usual revision schedule were: the updated
 seasonal data at the end of 1977 replaced data from 1967 through
 1977; and, in January 2002, dependently seasonally adjusted series
 were revised for January 1987-December 2001 as a result of a change
 in the aggregation weights for dependently adjusted series. For
 further information, please see "Aggregation of Dependently Adjusted
 Seasonally Adjusted Series," in the October 2001 issue of the CPI
 Detailed Report.
 
 Effective with the publication of data from January 2006 through
 December 2010 in January 2011, the Video and audio series and the
 Information technology, hardware and services series were changed
 from independently adjusted to dependently adjusted.  This resulted
 in an increase in the number of seasonal components used in deriving
 seasonal movement of the All items and 54 other lower level
 aggregations, from 73 for the publication of January 1998 through
 December 2005 data to 82 for the publication of seasonally adjusted
 data for January 2006 and later.  Each year the seasonal status of
 every series is reevaluated based upon certain statistical criteria.
 If any of the 82 components change their seasonal adjustment status
 from seasonally adjusted to not seasonally adjusted, not seasonally
 adjusted data will be used in the aggregation of the dependent series
 for the last 5 years, but the seasonally adjusted indexes before that
 period will not be changed.  Note: 37 of the 82 components are not
 seasonally adjusted for 2011.
 
 Seasonally adjusted data, including the all items index levels, are
 subject to revision for up to five years after their original
 release.  For this reason, BLS advises against the use of these data
 in escalation agreements.
 
 Effective with the calculation of the seasonal factors for 1990, the
 Bureau of Labor Statistics has used an enhanced seasonal adjustment
 procedure called Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment for some
 CPI series.  Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment allows for
 better estimates of seasonally adjusted data.  Extreme values and/or
 sharp movements which might distort the seasonal pattern are
 estimated and removed from the data prior to calculation of seasonal
 factors.  Beginning with the calculation of seasonal factors for
 1996, X-12-ARIMA software was used for Intervention Analysis Seasonal
 Adjustment.
 
 For the seasonal factors introduced in January 2011, BLS adjusted 29
 series using Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment, including
 selected food and beverage items, motor fuels, electricity and
 vehicles.  For example, this procedure was used for the Motor fuel
 series to offset the effects of events such as damage to oil
 refineries from Hurricane Katrina.

 series and explanations, please refer to the article "Intervention
 Analysis Seasonal Adjustment", located on our website at
