                   Consumer Price Index - July 2013

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased
 0.2 percent in July on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau
 of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all
 items index increased 2.0 percent before seasonal adjustment.
 
 The rise in the seasonally adjusted all items index was the result of
 increases in a broad array of indexes including shelter, gasoline,
 apparel, and food. Despite the gasoline increase, the energy index
 rose only 0.2 percent as the natural gas and electricity indexes
 declined. The increase in the food index was caused by a sharp rise
 in the fruits and vegetables index; other food indexes were mixed.
 
 The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.2 percent in
 July, the third straight such increase. Along with the advances in
 the shelter and apparel indexes, the indexes for medical care,
 tobacco, and new vehicles all rose. In contrast, the indexes for
 household furnishings and operations, airline fares, and used cars
 and trucks all declined in July.
 
 The all items index increased 2.0 percent over the last 12 months.
 The index for all items less food and energy has risen 1.7 percent
 over the last year; this compares to 1.6 percent for the 12 months
 ending June. The energy index has risen 4.7 percent over the last 12
 months, its largest increase since the 12 months ending February
 2012. The food index has risen 1.4 percent, the same figure as in May
 and June.

 Consumer Price Index Data for July 2013
 
 Food
 
 The food index increased 0.1 percent in July after rising 0.2 percent
 in June. The food at home index rose 0.1 percent, though only two of
 the six major grocery store food group indexes increased. The index
 for fruits and vegetables rose 1.5 percent, with the index for fresh
 vegetables rising 2.4 percent. The index for meats, poultry, fish,
 and eggs also increased, rising 0.2 percent, while the index for
 other food at home was unchanged. Indexes for the other groups
 declined. The index for nonalcoholic beverages fell 0.6 percent, its
 third decline in the last five months. The cereals and bakery
 products index declined 0.3 percent and the index for dairy and
 related products fell 0.1 percent. Over the past year, the food at
 home index has increased 1.0 percent. The fruits and vegetables index
 posted the largest increase over the span, rising 2.7 percent. The
 index for nonalcoholic beverages was the only one to decline, falling
 1.2 percent. The index for food away from home rose 0.2 percent in
 July, its third straight such increase, and has risen 2.1 percent
 over the past year.
 
 
 Energy
 
 The energy index rose 0.2 percent in July after increasing 3.4
 percent in June; this was its third increase in a row. The gasoline
 index increased 1.0 percent in July after a 6.3 percent increase in
 June. (Before seasonal adjustment, gasoline prices fell 0.4 percent
 in July.) The fuel oil index also increased, rising 1.1 percent.
 However, other household energy indexes declined. The electricity
 index fell 0.3 percent after increasing in each of the previous three
 months. The index for natural gas declined sharply in July, falling
 2.8 percent. Despite the July decline, it has still increased 8.8
 percent over the last 12 months. The other major energy component
 indexes have also risen over the same span: gasoline (5.2 percent),
 fuel oil (3.4 percent), and electricity (3.1 percent).

 in June, with the rent index increasing 0.2 percent and the index for
 owners' equivalent rent rising 0.1 percent. The apparel index
 increased for the third month in a row, rising 0.6 percent. The index
 for medical care rose 0.2 percent in July. The medical care
 commodities index increased 0.4 percent as the index for prescription
 drugs rose 0.5 percent for the second month in a row. The medical
 care services index advanced 0.1 percent. The tobacco index increased
 1.4 percent in July, its largest increase since July 2010. The index
 for new vehicles also rose in July, increasing 0.1 percent. In
 contrast to these increases, the index for household furnishings and
 operations declined 0.4 percent, its largest decrease since April
 2010, as the indexes for furniture and bedding and for appliances
 declined. The index for airlines fares, which fell 1.7 percent in
 June, declined 1.3 percent in July. The index for used cars and
 trucks also continued to fall, decreasing 0.4 percent, the same
 decline as in June. The indexes for recreation and personal care were
 both unchanged in July.
 
 The index for all items less food and energy increased 1.7 percent
 for the 12 months ending July. The shelter index increased 2.3
 percent over that span while the new vehicles index rose 1.2 percent;
 both figures were unchanged from last month. The index for medical
 care rose 1.9 percent over the last 12 months, with the medical care
 services index rising 2.6 percent but the medical care commodities
 index declining 0.1 percent over that span.
 Not seasonally adjusted CPI measures
 
 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased
 2.0 percent over the last 12 months to an index level of 233.596
 (1982-84=100). For the month, the index was unchanged prior to

 that the indexes for the post-2011 period are subject to revision.
 
 
 The Consumer Price Index for August 2013 is scheduled to be released
 on Tuesday, September 17, 2013, at 8:30 a.m. (EDT).





 Discontinuation of Department Store Inventory Indexes
 
 The Bureau of Labor Statistics will discontinue publication of its
 Department Store Inventory indexes after the release of the December
 2013 CPI in mid-January 2014, and these values will no longer be
 uploaded to the Labstat database. For further information please
 contact Sharon Gibson at 202-691-6968 or gibson.sharon@bls.gov.
 
 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 will be available
 in 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.
 
 Publication Changes for Average Price Series
 
 The Bureau of Labor Statistics discontinued publication of three
 average price series after the release of the June 2013 CPI in mid-
 July 2013. They are:

  -         utility (piped) gas, 40 therms;
  -         utility (piped) gas, 100 therms; and
  -         electricity, 500 kilowatt hours.

 The Bureau, however, continues to publish average prices for utility
 (piped) gas on a per therm basis, and will continue to publish
 electricity prices on a per kilowatt hour basis. As such, users will
 be able to convert these data to any consumption amount.  CPI
 Detailed Report table P1. Average residential prices for utility
 (piped) gas, electricity, and fuel oil, U.S. city average and
 selected areas are no longer  published. Data for fuel oil #2, per
 gallon (3.785 liters) continues to be available in the CPI Average
 Price Data public database.

 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 cover 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.
 
 Index Point Change

 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 2008 through December 2012 were replaced in January
 2013.  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 2013.
 
 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 2013, 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 damage to oil
 refineries from Hurricane Katrina.

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

(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 2013 are intial estimates. Indexes for 2012 are interim adjustments. Data prior to 2012 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.

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.
