                  Consumer Price Index - January 2010
 
 On a seasonally adjusted basis, the January Consumer Price Index for
 All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) rose 0.2 percent, the U.S. Bureau of
 Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the index
 increased 2.6 percent before seasonal adjustment.
 
 The seasonally adjusted increase in the all items index was due to a
 rise in the energy index. An increase in the gasoline index was the
 main factor, and the indexes for fuel oil and natural gas rose as
 well, though the electricity index declined.
 
 The index for all items less food and energy fell 0.1 percent in
 January. This decline was largely the result of decreases in the
 indexes for shelter, new vehicles, and airline fares. In contrast,
 the medical care index posted its largest increase since January
 2008, and the index for used cars and trucks increased significantly
 for the sixth month in a row.
 
 The food index increased in January, with the food at home component
 posting its largest increase since September 2008. Sharp increases in
 the indexes for dairy and related products and for fruits and
 vegetables accounted for most of the increase.

 C-CPI-U Index Revisions
 
 As scheduled, effective with release of data for January 2010, 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 2008 will be issued in final form - employing
 monthly expenditure weights from 2008. Values for the 12 months of
 2009 will be revised and issued as interim, using expenditure weights
 from the 2007-2008 period.  Calculation of the initial value of the
 January 2010 C-CPI-U index, and all subsequent months in 2010, 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 .
 
 
 Item Structure and publication changes for January 2010
 
 Effective with this release of CPI data, the BLS is introducing
 several item structure and other publication changes into the CPI.
 
 Shelter. The expenditure weight for second homes will be moved from
 Lodging away from home to a new, unpriced stratum under the Owners'
 equivalent rent expenditure class. As such, the expenditure class
 index for Owners' equivalent rent will now include both primary and
 secondary homes, and the title of that expenditure class index will
 change from Owners' equivalent rent of primary residences to Owners'
 equivalent rent of residences. Both the expenditure class (Owners'
 equivalent rent of residences), and the Owners' equivalent rent of
 primary residence stratum within it, will be published.
 
 Current Structure

   Housing at school, excluding board
   Other lodging away from home including hotels and motels
 
 Owners' equivalent rent of primary residence
   Owners' equivalent rent of primary residence*
 
 New Structure

     Land-line telephone services, long distance
     Wireless telephone services
 
 New structure
 Telephone services
     Wireless telephone services
     Land-line telephone services
 
 Indexes that are deemed continuous will have the same reference base
 previously used. New index series will have a December 2009 = 100
 reference base. Unpublished series are indicated with a *.
 
 Other publication changes
 The index for State and local registration and license will be
 retitled State motor vehicle registration and license fees.
 
 A new index for Intracity mass transit will be published.  Indexes
 for Land-line interstate toll calls and Land-line intrastate toll
 calls will be discontinued.
 
 
 
 
 
 Expenditure Weight Update
 
 Effective with the release of the January 2010 CPI on February 19,
 2010, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) will update the
 consumption expenditure weights in the Consumer Price Index for All
 Urban Consumers (CPI-U) and Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage
 Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) to the 2007-08 period. The
 updated expenditure weights for these indexes will replace the 2005-
 2006 weights that were introduced effective with the January 2008 CPI
 release.  As originally announced by BLS in December 1998, CPI
 expenditure weights will continue to be updated at two-year
 intervals.

 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 25,000
 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 100.0.
 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 116.5.  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 0.04 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 0.08 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 0.12 and 0.28 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 2008".  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/cpivar2008.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

 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 2005 through December 2009 were replaced in January
 2010.  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.
 
 The seasonal movement of all items and 54 other aggregations is
 derived by combining the seasonal movement of 73 selected components.
 Each year the seasonal status of every series is reevaluated based
 upon certain statistical criteria.  If any of the 73 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 will be used before that period.  Note:
 46 of the 73 components are seasonally adjusted for 2010.
 
 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 2010, BLS adjusted 30
 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
