 CONSUMER PRICE INDEX – FEBRUARY 2014

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased
 0.1 percent in February on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S.
 Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months,
 the all items index increased 1.1 percent before seasonal adjustment.

 An increase in the food index accounted for more than half of the all
 items increase in February.  The food index rose 0.4 percent in February,
 driven by a 0.5 percent increase in the index for food at home, with four
 of the six major grocery store food group indexes increasing.  The energy
 index declined, with a decrease in the gasoline index more than offsetting
 sharp increases in the fuel oil and natural gas indexes.  

 The index for all items less food and energy also rose 0.1 percent in
 February.  An increase of 0.2 percent in the shelter index was the major
 contributor to the rise, but the indexes for medical care, airline fares,
 personal care, recreation, and new vehicles also increased. In contrast,
 the indexes for household furnishings and operations, apparel, used cars
 and trucks, and tobacco all declined in February. 

 The all items index increased 1.1 percent over the last 12 months; this
 compares to increases of 1.5 percent in December and 1.6 percent in 
 January. The index for all items less food and energy rose 1.6 percent 
 over the last 12 months. The energy index declined 2.5 percent
 over the same period, while the food index has increased 1.4 percent.

 Consumer Price Index Data for February 2014

 Food

 The food index rose 0.4 percent in February, its largest increase since
 September 2011.  The food at home index increased 0.5 percent as four of
 the six major grocery store food group indexes increased.  The index for
 meats, poultry, fish, and eggs rose 1.2 percent while the indexes for
 dairy and related products and other food at home saw more modest increases
 of 0.7 percent and 0.2 percent, respectively.  The index for fruits and
 vegetables rose 1.1 percent after five consecutive declines, though fresh
 vegetables declined 0.2 percent.  The index for cereals and bakery products
 was down 0.4 percent, and the index for nonalcoholic beverages declined
 0.3 percent.  The food index has risen 1.4 percent over the past year, with
 the food at home index up 0.9 percent and the index for food away from home
 up 2.2 percent. The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs has risen
 4.0 percent over the last 12 months, compared to more modest increases for
 dairy and related products, cereals and bakery products, and other food at

 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.

(1) Foods, fuels, and several other items are priced every month in all areas. Most other goods and services are priced as indicated: M - Every month. 1 - January, March, May, July, September, and November. 2 - February, April, June, August, October, and December.
(2) Regions defined as the four Census regions.
(3) Indexes on a December 1996=100 base.
(4) Indexes on a December 1986=100 base.
(5) In addition, the following metropolitan areas are published semiannually and appear in Tables 34 and 39 of the January and July issues of the CPI Detailed Report: Anchorage, AK; Cincinnati-Hamilton, OH-KY-IN; Denver-Boulder-Greeley, CO; Honolulu, HI; Kansas City, MO-KS; Milwaukee-Racine, WI; Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN-WI; Phoenix-Mesa, AZ; Pittsburgh, PA; Portland-Salem, OR-WA; St. Louis, MO-IL; San Diego, CA; Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL.
(6) Indexes on a November 1996=100 base.

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.
(11) This index series was calculated using a Laspeyres estimator. All other item stratum index series were calculated using a geometric means estimator.
(12) Indexes on a December 2009=100 base.

(14) Indexes on a December 1983=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.
