 CONSUMER PRICE INDEX – DECEMBER 2020
 
 (NOTE: This news release was reissued January 19, 2021, correcting 29 seasonally
 adjusted CPI-U special relative series in tables 2 and 6. Additional
 information is available at www.bls.gov/errata/home.htm?errataID=82899.)

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.4 percent 
 in December on a seasonally adjusted basis after rising 0.2 percent in November, 
 the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, 
 the all items index increased 1.4 percent before seasonal adjustment.
 
 The seasonally adjusted increase in the all items index was driven by an 
 8.4-percent increase in the gasoline index, which accounted for more than 60 
 percent of the overall increase. The other components of the energy index were 
 mixed, resulting in an increase of 4.0 percent for the month. The food index 
 rose in December, as both the food at home and the food away from home indexes 
 increased 0.4 percent.  
 
 The index for all items less food and energy increased 0.1 percent in December 
 after rising 0.2 percent in the previous month. The indexes for apparel, motor 
 vehicle insurance, new vehicles, personal care, and household furnishings and 
 operations all rose in December. The indexes for used cars and trucks, 
 recreation, and medical care were among those to decline over the month. 
 
 The all items index rose 1.4 percent for the 12 months ending December, a 
 slightly larger increase than the 1.2-percent rise reported for the period 
 ending November. The index for all items less food and energy rose 1.6 percent 
 over the last 12 months, as it did in the periods ending October and November. 
 The food index rose 3.9 percent over the last 12 months, while the energy 
 index fell 7.0 percent.

 November. Major grocery store food group indexes were mixed over the month. The 
 index for other food at home rose 0.7 percent in December after falling 0.6 percent 
 in November. The nonalcoholic beverages index increased 1.1 percent after a 0.9-
 percent decline in the previous month. The index for dairy and related products 
 rose 0.8 percent in December, and the index for cereals and bakery products

 Energy
 
 The energy index rose for the seventh month in a row in December, increasing 
 4.0 percent. The largest contribution to this increase was the gasoline index, 
 which increased 8.4 percent in December after declining in the previous 2 months. 
 (Before seasonal adjustment, gasoline prices rose 3.4 percent in December.) 
 The index for electricity rose 0.4 percent over the month, while the index for 
 natural gas fell 0.8 percent.

 oil index declining 20.0 percent and the gasoline index decreasing 15.2 percent. 
 Energy service indexes rose over the last 12 months, with the index for natural 
 gas increasing 4.1 percent and the index for electricity rising 2.2 percent.  
 
 All items less food and energy
 
 The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.1 percent in December after 
 rising 0.2 percent in November. The shelter index rose 0.1 percent in December, 
 the fifth 0.1-percent increase in a row for that index. The indexes for rent 
 and owners’ equivalent rent both increased 0.1 percent in December, after both 
 were unchanged in November. The index for lodging away from home was unchanged 
 in December after rising sharply in November.

 motor vehicle insurance. The index for personal care and the index for new 
 vehicles both rose 0.4 percent over the month after falling 0.1 percent the 
 previous month. The index for household furnishings and operations increased 
 0.2 percent in December after rising 0.7 percent in November.
 
 The index for used cars and trucks declined for the third consecutive month, 
 falling 1.2 percent in December. The recreation index fell 0.3 percent in 
 December, ending a string of 4 consecutive monthly increases. The index for 
 medical care continued to decline in December, falling 0.2 percent after 
 decreasing 0.1 percent in November. The index for prescription drugs declined 
 0.4 percent over the month, while the index for hospital services rose 0.3 
 percent in December, and the index for physicians’ services was unchanged.
 
 The index for all items less food and energy rose 1.6 percent over the past 12 
 months. The shelter index rose 1.8 percent over the last 12 months. The used 
 cars and trucks index increased 10.0 percent over the last 12 months and the 
 medical care index increased 1.8 percent. Indexes which declined over the past 
 12 months included the indexes for airline fares, apparel, lodging away from 
 home, and motor vehicle insurance.
 
 Not seasonally adjusted CPI measures
 
 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 1.4 percent 
 over the last 12 months to an index level of 260.474 (1982-84=100). For the 
 month, the index increased 0.1 percent prior to seasonal adjustment.  
 
 The Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) 
 increased 1.4 percent over the last 12 months to an index level of 254.081 
 (1982-84=100). For the month, the index rose 0.1 percent prior to seasonal 
 adjustment.  
 
 The Chained Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U) increased 
 1.2 percent over the last 12 months. For the month, the index increased 0.1 
 percent on a not seasonally adjusted basis. Please note that the indexes for 
 the past 10 to 12 months are subject to revision. 
   
 Year in Review (December to December)
 
 The all items CPI-U rose 1.4 percent in 2020. This was smaller than the 2019 
 increase of 2.3 percent and the smallest December-to-December increase since 
 the 0.7-percent rise in 2015. The index rose at a 1.7-percent average annual 
 rate over the last 10 years.
 
 The food index increased 3.9 percent in 2020, a larger increase than the 2019 
 rise of 1.8 percent. The index for food at home also increased 3.9 percent in 
 2020, a larger increase than the 0.7-percent increase reported for 2019. Over 
 the last 10 years, the food index rose at a 2.0-percent average annual rate, 
 and the food at home index increased at a 1.5-percent average annual rate.

 All six major grocery store food group indexes rose in 2020. The index for 
 meats, poultry, fish, and eggs rose 4.6 percent in 2020 after rising 2.3 
 percent in 2019. Similarly, the dairy and related products index increased 
 4.4 percent in 2020 after increasing 2.4 percent in 2019. The index for 
 nonalcoholic beverages also increased by 4.4 percent in 2020, while the index 
 for other food at home rose 3.9 percent over the year. The cereals and bakery
 products and the fruits and vegetables indexes both increased 3.2 percent in 
 2020.
 
 The index for food away from home rose 3.9 percent in 2020, a somewhat larger 
 increase than the 3.1 percent increase in 2019 and the largest December-to-
 December rise since 2008. The food away from home index increased at a 2.7-
 percent average annual rate over the last 10 years.

 The energy index decreased 7.0 percent in 2020 after increasing 3.4 percent 
 in 2019. The index for gasoline fell 15.2 percent in 2020 after rising 7.9 
 percent the previous year. The index for fuel oil fell 20.0 percent in 2020. 
 These declines more than offset increases in the other energy component indexes. 
 The index for natural gas rose 4.1 percent in 2020 after falling 3.5 percent 
 in 2019, while the index for electricity increased 2.2 percent over the year 
 after declining 0.4 percent in the previous year. The energy index decreased 
 at a 0.9-percent average annual rate since December 2010. 
 
 The index for all items less food and energy rose 1.6 percent in 2020, a 
 smaller increase than the 2.3- percent increase reported for 2019, and smaller 
 than the 2.0-percent average annual rate over the past 10 years. The shelter 
 index rose 1.8 percent, the smallest December-to-December increase since 2010. 
 The index for rent increased 2.3 percent in 2020, while the index for owners’ 
 equivalent rent increased 2.2 percent. The index for household furnishings and 
 operations increased 3.2 percent in 2020 after increasing 1.0 percent in 2019.

 the largest December-to-December decrease ever reported for that index, which 
 dates to December 1997.

 The medical care index increased 1.8 percent in 2020, a smaller increase than 
 the 4.6-percent increase reported for 2019. The index for hospital services 
 rose 3.0 percent in 2020, the same increase as in 2019. The physicians’ 
 services index rose 1.7 percent over the year. The index for prescription 
 drugs, in contrast, fell 2.4 percent in 2020 after rising 3.0 percent in 2019. 
 The medical care index increased at a 2.8-percent average annual rate over 
 the last decade.
 
 The index for used cars and trucks increased 10.0 percent in 2020, the largest 
 December-to-December increase reported for that index since 1983. The new 
 vehicles index rose 2.0 percent in 2020 after rising 0.1 percent in 2019. The 
 index for motor vehicle insurance fell 4.8 percent over the year after being

 Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic Impact on December 2020 Consumer Price Index Data

 Data collection by personal visit for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) program has been suspended
 since March 16, 2020. When possible, data normally collected by personal visit were collected either
 online or by phone. Additionally, data collection in December was affected by the temporary closing or
 limited operations of certain types of establishments. These factors resulted in an increase in the
 number of prices considered temporarily unavailable and imputed. While the CPI program attempted to
 collect as much data as possible, many indexes are based on smaller amounts of collected prices
 than usual, and a small number of indexes that are normally published were not published this month.

 Technical Note
 
 Brief Explanation of the CPI
 
 The Consumer Price Index (CPI) measures the change in prices paid by consumers 
 for goods and services. The CPI reflects spending patterns for each of two 
 population groups: all urban consumers and urban wage earners and clerical workers. 
 The all urban consumer group represents about 93 percent of the total U.S. population. 
 It is based on the expenditures of almost all residents of urban or metropolitan areas, 
 including professionals, the self-employed, the poor, the unemployed, and retired 
 people, as well as urban wage earners and clerical workers. Not included in the CPI 
 are the spending patterns of people living in rural nonmetropolitan areas, farming 
 families, people in the Armed Forces, and those in institutions, such as prisons and 
 mental hospitals. Consumer inflation for all urban consumers is measured by two indexes, 
 namely, the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) and the Chained 
 Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U). 

 The Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) is based 
 on the expenditures of households included in the CPI-U definition that meet two 
 requirements: more than one-half of the household's income must come from clerical 
 or wage occupations, and at least one of the household's earners must have been 
 employed for at least 37 weeks during the previous 12 months. The CPI-W population 
 represents about 29 percent of the total U.S. population and is a subset of the CPI-U 
 population.
 
 The CPIs are based on prices of food, clothing, shelter, fuels, transportation, doctors’ 
 and dentists’ services, drugs, and other goods and services that people buy for day-to-
 day living. Prices are collected each month in 75 urban areas across the country from 
 about 6,000 housing units and approximately 22,000 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 75 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 
 by the Bureau’s trained representatives.

 In calculating the index, price changes for the various items in each location are 
 aggregated using 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 
 23 selected 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. The CPI-U and CPI-W 
 are considered final when released, but the C-CPI-U is issued in preliminary form and 
 subject to three subsequent quarterly revisions. 
 
 The index measures price change from a designed reference date. For most of 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 7 percent from the reference base, for 
 example, is shown as 107.000. Alternatively, that relationship can also be expressed as 
 the price of a base period market basket of goods and services rising from $100 to $107. 
 
 Sampling Error in the CPI

 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 0.03 percent for the U.S. all 
 items CPI. 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 
 percent of these estimates will be within 0.06 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-U, we are 95 percent confident that the actual percent change based on all 
 retail prices would fall between 0.14 and 0.26 percent. For the latest data, including 
 information on how to use the estimates of standard error, see 
 https://www.bls.gov/cpi/tables/variance-estimates/home.htm. 

 Calculating Index Changes
 
 Movements of the indexes from 1 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 following table shows an example of using index values to calculate percent 
 changes:
  
                                Item A                  Item B                      Item C
 Year I                         112.500                 225.000                     110.000
 Year II                        121.500                 243.000                     128.000
 Change in index points         9.000                   18.000                      18.000
 Percent change                 9.0/112.500 x 100 = 8.0  18.0/225.000 x 100 = 8.0   18.0/110.000 x 100 = 16.4
 
 Use of Seasonally Adjusted and Unadjusted Data
 
 The Consumer Price Index (CPI) produces both unadjusted and seasonally adjusted data. 
 Seasonally adjusted data are computed using seasonal factors derived by the X-13ARIMA-
 SEATS seasonal adjustment method. These factors are updated each February, and the new 
 factors are used to revise the previous 5 years of seasonally adjusted data. The factors 
 are available at www.bls.gov/cpi/tables/seasonal-adjustment/seasonal-factors-2020.pdf. 
 For more information on data revision scheduling, please see the Factsheet on Seasonal 
 Adjustment at www.bls.gov/cpi/seasonal-adjustment/questions-and-answers.htm and the 
 Timeline of Seasonal Adjustment Methodological Changes at 
 www.bls.gov/cpi/seasonal-adjustment/timeline-seasonal-adjustment-methodology-changes.htm. 

 For analyzing short-term 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 weather events, production cycles, model changeovers, holidays, and sales. This allows 
 data users to focus on changes that are not typical for the time of year. The unadjusted 
 data are of primary interest to consumers concerned about the prices they actually pay. 
 Unadjusted data are also 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. BLS advises against 
 the use of seasonally adjusted data in escalation agreements because seasonally adjusted 
 series are revised annually.
 
 Intervention Analysis

 The Bureau of Labor Statistics uses intervention analysis seasonal adjustment for some 
 CPI series. Sometimes extreme values or sharp movements can distort the underlying seasonal 
 pattern of price change. Intervention analysis seasonal adjustment is a process by which 
 the distortions caused by such unusual events are estimated and removed from the data prior 
 to calculation of seasonal factors. The resulting seasonal factors, which more accurately 
 represent the seasonal pattern, are then applied to the unadjusted data. 
 
 For example, this procedure was used for the motor fuel series to offset the effects of the 
 2009 return to normal pricing after the worldwide economic downturn in 2008. Retaining this 
 outlier data during seasonal factor calculation would distort the computation of the seasonal 
 portion of the time series data for motor fuel, so it was estimated and removed from the 
 data prior to seasonal adjustment. Following that, seasonal factors were calculated based 
 on this “prior adjusted” data. These seasonal factors represent a clearer picture of the 
 seasonal pattern in the data. The last step is for motor fuel seasonal factors to be applied 
 to the unadjusted data.

 For the seasonal factors introduced for January 2020, BLS adjusted 53 series using 
 intervention analysis seasonal adjustment, including selected food and beverage items, motor 
 fuels, electricity, and vehicles. 
 
 Revision of Seasonally Adjusted Indexes

 Seasonally adjusted data, including the U.S. city average all items index levels, are subject 
 to revision for up to 5 years after their original release. Every year, economists in the CPI 
 calculate new seasonal factors for seasonally adjusted series and apply them to the last 5 
 years of data. Seasonally adjusted indexes beyond the last 5 years of data are considered to 
 be final and not subject to revision. For January 2020, revised seasonal factors and seasonally 
 adjusted indexes for 2015 to 2019 were calculated and published. For series which are directly 
 adjusted using the Census X-13ARIMA-SEATS seasonal adjustment software, the seasonal factors 
 for 2019 will be applied to data for 2020 to produce the seasonally adjusted 2020 indexes. 
 Series which are indirectly seasonally adjusted by summing seasonally adjusted component 
 series have seasonal factors which are derived and are therefore not available in advance. 
 
 Determining Seasonal Status

 Each year the seasonal status of every series is reevaluated based upon certain statistical 
 criteria. Using these criteria, BLS economists determine whether a series should change its 
 status from "not seasonally adjusted" to "seasonally adjusted", or vice versa. If any of the 
 81 components of the U.S. city average all items index 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. Twenty-eight of the 81 components 
 of the U.S. city average all items index are not seasonally adjusted for 2020.

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.

Footnotes
(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 issued first in preliminary form using the latest available expenditure data at that time and is subject to four revisions.

Indexes are issued as initial estimates. Indexes are revised each quarter with the publication of January, April, July, and October data as updated expenditure estimates become available. The C-CPI-U indexes are updated quarterly until they become final. January-March indexes are final in January of the following year; April-June indexes are final in April of the following year; July-September indexes are final in July of the following year; October-December indexes are final in October of the following year.

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.
