                  CONSUMER PRICE INDEX - JANUARY 2014

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.1 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 the indexes for household energy accounted for most of the
 all items increase. The electricity index posted its largest increase since
 March 2010, and the indexes for natural gas and fuel oil also rose sharply.
 These increases more than offset a decline in the gasoline index, resulting
 in a 0.6 percent increase in the energy index.

 The index for all items less food and energy also rose 0.1 percent in January.
 A 0.3 percent increase in the shelter index was the major contributor to the 
 rise, but the indexes for medical care, recreation, personal care, and tobacco
 also increased. In contrast, the indexes for airline fares, used cars and trucks,
 new vehicles, and apparel all declined in January. The food index rose slightly
 in January. The index for food at home rose 0.1 percent, with major grocery
 store food groups mixed.

 The all items index increased 1.6 percent over the last 12 months; this compares
 to a 1.5 percent increase for the 12 months ending December. The index for all
 items less food and energy has also risen 1.6 percent over the last 12 months.
 The energy index has risen 2.1 percent over the span, and the food index has
 increased 1.1 percent.

 Consumer Price Index Data for January 2014
 
 Food

 The food index rose 0.1 percent in January. The food at home index increased 0.1
 percent, with the major grocery store food group indexes mixed. Three of the six
 increased, including the indexes for cereals and bakery products and for dairy
 and related products, which both rose 0.5 percent. The index for meats, poultry,
 fish, and eggs also increased, rising 0.4 percent. In contrast, the fruits and 
 vegetables index declined in January, falling 0.3 percent, while the index for
 nonalcoholic beverages fell 0.2 percent. The index for other food at home was
 unchanged in January. The food index has risen 1.1 percent over the past year,
 with the food at home index up 0.5 percent. The index for meats, poultry, fish,
 and eggs has risen 3.3 percent over the last 12 months. The index for cereals 
 and bakery products has also risen over that span, but the other major grocery
 store food group indexes have declined. The index for food away from home rose
 0.1 percent in January and has increased 2.0 percent over the last 12 months.  

                   
 Energy

 The energy index rose 0.6 percent in January as a decline in the gasoline index
 was more than offset by increases in household energy components. The 
 electricity index rose 1.8 percent, its largest increase since March 2010. The
 index for natural gas also rose sharply, increasing 3.6 percent, and the fuel oil
 index increased 3.7 percent. The gasoline index, which rose in December, fell 1.0
 percent in January. (Before seasonal adjustment, gasoline prices rose 1.4 percent
 in January.) The energy index has increased 2.1 percent over the last year, with
 all major components posting increases, though the gasoline index has increased
 only 0.1 percent. 


 All items less food and energy

 The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.1 percent in January. The
 shelter index rose 0.3 percent, with the indexes for rent and owners' equivalent
 rent both rising 0.2 percent, and the index for lodging away from home advancing
 1.3 percent. The medical care index rose 0.3 percent in January. The index for
 medical care commodities advanced 0.5 percent as the prescription drug index rose
 0.6 percent. The index for medical care services increased 0.2 percent. The
 recreation index rose 0.2 percent, as did the index for personal care. The
 tobacco index increased 0.7 percent, its largest increase since July. In contrast
 to these increases, the index for airline fares fell sharply in January, declining
 2.2 percent. The index for used cars and trucks fell 0.5 percent. The new vehicles
 index declined as well, falling 0.3 percent. The apparel index, which rose in
 December, also declined 0.3 percent. The index for household furnishings and
 operations was unchanged in January.

 The index for all items less food and energy has risen 1.6 percent over the last
 12 months; this is the smallest 12-month change since June. The shelter index has
 risen 2.6 percent over the last 12 months, while the medical care index has risen
 2.1 percent. The indexes for airline fares and apparel have both declined over the
 last year. 




 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 233.916 (1982-84=100). For the month,
 the index rose 0.4 percent prior to seasonal adjustment.  

 The Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W)
 increased 1.6 percent over the last 12 months to an index level of 230.040 
 (1982-84=100). For the month, the index rose 0.4 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 rose 0.4 percent on a not
 seasonally adjusted basis. Please note that the indexes for the post-2012 period
 are subject to revision. 

	
 The Consumer Price Index for February 2014 is scheduled to be released on Tuesday,
 March 18, 2014, at 8:30 a.m. (EDT). 




 C-CPI-U Index Revisions

 As scheduled, effective with this release of data for January 2014, 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 2012 are issued in final form - employing monthly
 expenditure weights from 2012. Values for the 12 months of 2013 are revised and
 issued as interim, using expenditure weights from the 2011-2012 period. 
 Calculation of the initial value of the January 2014 C-CPI-U index, and all
 subsequent months in 2014, will also be based upon 2011-2012 expenditure weights.

 Expenditure Weight Update

 Effective with this release of the January 2014 CPI, the Bureau of Labor 
 Statistics (BLS) has updated 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 2011-2012 period. The updated 
 expenditure weights for these indexes replace the 2009-2010 weights that were
 introduced effective with the January 2012 CPI release. 

 Chained Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U) Annual 
 Average Indexes Discontinued           

 The final revisions of the C-CPI-U indexes for 2012 are available as of February
 2014. Annual average indexes for C-CPI-U series will not be published for time 
 periods after 2012. (Monthly C-CPI-U indexes will continue to be published.)   In
 February 2014, the annual average indexes for the final estimates for 2012 C-CPI-U
 series will be published in the public CPI database. Table 1CA will not be published.

 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 29 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 covers approximately 88 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 0.04 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 2012". 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/cpivar2012.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-13ARIMA-SEATS Seasonal Adjustment Method.  Seasonally adjusted indexes and seasonal 
 factors are computed annually.  Each year, the last five years of seasonally adjusted data
 are revised. Data from January 2009 through December 2013 were replaced in January 2014.
 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 64 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 five 
 years, but the seasonally adjusted indexes before that period will not be changed. 
 Note: 35 of the 82 components are not seasonally adjusted for 2014.

 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. In 
 2014, for the 2009-2013 revisions, the Bureau of Labor Statistics began using 
 X-13ARIMA-SEATS to perform the seasonal adjustment of CPI series, including Intervention 
 Analysis Seasonal Adjustment for certain series.

 For the seasonal factors introduced in January 2014, BLS adjusted 31 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 the response in crude oil markets to 
 the worldwide economic downturn in 2008.

 please refer to the article "Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment", located on our 
 website at http://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpisapage.htm.

NOTE: Local area indexes are byproducts of the national CPI program. Each local index has a smaller sample size than the national index and is, therefore, subject to substantially more sampling and other measurement error. As a result, local area indexes show greater volatility than the national index, although their long-term trends are similar. Therefore, the Bureau of Labor Statistics strongly urges users to consider adopting the national average CPI for use in their escalator clauses.
NOTE: Index applies to a month as a whole, not to any specific date.

(1) The C-CPI-U is designed to be a closer approximation to a cost-of-living index in that it, in its final form, accounts for any substitution that consumers make across item categories in response to changes in relative prices. Since the expenditure data required for the calculation of the C-CPI-U are available only with a time lag, the C-CPI-U is being issued first in preliminary form using the latest available expenditure data at that time and is subject to two revisions.

NOTE: Indexes for 2014 are intial estimates. Indexes for 2013 are interim adjustments. Data prior to 2013 are final.
NOTE: Index applies to a month as a whole, not to any specific date.

Footnotes
(1) The 'effect' of an item category is a measure of that item's contribution to the All items price change. For example, if the Food index had an effect of 0.40, and the All items index rose 1.2 percent, then the increase in food prices contributed 0.40 / 1.2, or 33.3 percent, to that All items increase. Said another way, had food prices been unchanged for that month the change in the All items index would have been 1.2 percent minus 0.40, or 0.8 percent. Effects can be negative as well. For example, if the effect of food was a negative 0.1, and the All items index rose 0.5 percent, the All items index actually would have been 0.1 percent higher (or 0.6 percent) had food prices been unchanged. Since food prices fell while prices overall were rising, the contribution of food to the All items price change was negative (in this case, -0.1 / 0.5, or minus 20 percent).
(2) A statistic's margin of error is often expressed as its point estimate plus or minus two standard errors. For example, if a CPI category rose 0.6 percent, and its standard error was 0.15 percent, the margin of error on this item's 1-month percent change would be 0.6 percent, plus or minus 0.3 percent.
(3) If the current seasonally adjusted 1-month percent change is greater than the previous published 1-month percent change, then this column identifies the closest prior month with a 1-month percent change as (L)arge as or (L)arger than the current 1-month change. If the current 1-month percent change is smaller than the previous published 1-month percent change, the most recent month with a change as (S)mall or (S)maller than the current month change is identified. If the current and previous published 1-month percent changes are equal, a dash will appear. Standard numerical comparisons are used. For example, 0.8% is greater than 0.6%, -0.4% is less than -0.2%, and -0.2% is less than 0.0%. Note that a (L)arger change can be a smaller decline, for example, a -0.2% change is larger than a -0.4% change, but still represents a decline in the price index. Likewise, (S)maller changes can be increases, for example, a 0.6% change is smaller than 0.8%, but still represents an increase in the price index. In this context, a -0.2% change is considered to be smaller than a 0.0% change.
(4) Not seasonally adjusted.
(5) Indexes on a December 1997=100 base.
(6) Special indexes based on a substantially smaller sample. These series do not contribute to the all items index aggregation and therefore do not have a relative importance or effect.
(7) Indexes on a December 2007=100 base.
(8) Indexes on a December 2005=100 base.
(9) Indexes on a December 1986=100 base.
(10) Indexes on a December 1993=100 base.

Footnotes
(1) The 'effect' of an item category is a measure of that item's contribution to the All items price change. For example, if the Food index had an effect of 0.40, and the All items index rose 1.2 percent, then the increase in food prices contributed 0.40 / 1.2, or 33.3 percent, to that All items increase. Said another way, had food prices been unchanged for that year the change in the All items index would have been 1.2 percent minus 0.40, or 0.8 percent. Effects can be negative as well. For example, if the effect of food was a negative 0.1, and the All items index rose 0.5 percent, the All items index actually would have been 0.1 percent higher (or 0.6 percent) had food prices been unchanged. Since food prices fell while prices overall were rising, the contribution of food to the All items price change was negative (in this case, -0.1 / 0.5, or minus 20 percent).
(2) A statistic's margin of error is often expressed as its point estimate plus or minus two standard errors. For example, if a CPI category rose 2.6 percent, and its standard error was 0.25 percent, the margin of error on this item's 12-month percent change would be 2.6 percent, plus or minus 0.5 percent.
(3) If the current 12-month percent change is greater than the previous published 12-month percent change, then this column identifies the closest prior month with a 12-month percent change as (L)arge as or (L)arger than the current 12-month change. If the current 12-month percent change is smaller than the previous published 12-month percent change, the most recent month with a change as (S)mall or (S)maller than the current month change is identified. If the current and previous published 12-month percent changes are equal, a dash will appear. Standard numerical comparison is used. For example, 2.0% is greater than 0.6%, -4.4% is less than -2.0%, and -2.0% is less than 0.0%. Note that a (L)arger change can be a smaller decline, for example, a -0.2% change is larger than a -0.4% change, but still represents a decline in the price index. Likewise, (S)maller changes can be increases, for example, a 0.6% change is smaller than 0.8%, but still represents an increase in the price index. In this context, a -0.2% change is considered to be smaller than a 0.0% change.
