The 12-month percent change in the CPI interactive chart for the shelter index displayed a seasonally adjusted number instead of the reported not seasonally adjusted number over the past several years. The seasonally adjusted and not seasonally adjusted numbers are often the same but can differ slightly in some months. For additional information, see the BLS errata page.
