CONSUMER PRICE INDEX – FEBRUARY 2022

The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.8 percent 
in February on a seasonally adjusted basis after rising 0.6 percent in January, 
the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, 
the all items index increased 7.9 percent before seasonal adjustment.

Increases in the indexes for gasoline, shelter, and food were the largest 
contributors to the seasonally adjusted all items increase. The gasoline index 
rose 6.6 percent in February and accounted for almost a third of the all items 
monthly increase; other energy component indexes were mixed. The food index rose 
1.0 percent as the food at home index rose 1.4 percent; both were the largest 
monthly increases since April 2020.  

The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.5 percent in February 
following a 0.6-percent increase the prior month. The shelter index was by far 
the biggest factor in the increase, with a broad set of indexes also 
contributing, including those for recreation, household furnishings and 
operations, motor vehicle insurance, personal care, and airline fares.   

The all items index rose 7.9 percent for the 12 months ending February. The 
12-month increase has been steadily rising and is now the largest since the 
period ending January 1982. The all items less food and energy index rose 6.4 
percent, the largest 12-month change since the period ending August 1982. The 
energy index rose 25.6 percent over the last year, and the food index increased 
7.9 percent, the largest 12-month increase since the period ending July 1981.

1.4 percent over the month. All six major grocery store food group indexes increased 
in February. The index for fruits and vegetables had the largest increase, rising 2.3 
percent, its largest monthly increase since March 2010. The index for fresh fruits 
increased 3.7 percent over the month, and the index for fresh vegetables rose 1.3 
percent. The index for dairy and related products rose 1.9 percent, its largest 
monthly increase since April 2011. The index for nonalcoholic beverages increased 
1.6 percent in February. 

The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs increased 1.2 percent in February as all 
of its major component indexes increased. The index for cereals and bakery products 
rose 1.1 percent and the index for other food at home increased 0.8 percent over the 
month. 

The food away from home index rose 0.4 percent in February after increasing 0.7 
percent in January. The index for full service meals rose 0.6 percent and the index 
for limited service meals increased 0.3 percent. 

The food at home index rose 8.6 percent over the last 12 months, the largest 12-month 
increase since the period ending April 1981. The index for meats, poultry, fish, and 
eggs increased 13.0 percent over the last year as the index for beef rose 16.2 percent. 
The other major grocery store food group indexes also rose over the past year, with 
increases ranging from 5.2 percent (dairy and related products) to 8.2 percent (other 
food at home). 

The index for food away from home rose 6.8 percent over the last year, the largest 
12-month increase since December 1981. The index for limited service meals rose 8.0 
percent over the last 12 months, and the index for full service meals rose 7.5 percent. 
The index for food at employee sites and schools, in contrast, declined 40.7 percent 
over the past 12 months, reflecting widespread free lunch programs.

Energy

The energy index rose 3.5 percent in February following a 0.9-percent increase in 
January. The gasoline index rose sharply in February, increasing 6.6 percent after 
falling 0.8 percent in January. (Before seasonal adjustment, gasoline prices rose 5.4 
percent in February.) The index for natural gas increased in February, rising 1.5 
percent after declining 0.5 percent in January. In contrast, the electricity index, 
which rose sharply in January, declined 1.1 percent in February. 

The energy index rose 25.6 percent over the past 12 months with all major energy 
component indexes increasing. The index for gasoline rose 38.0 percent over the last 
year and the index for natural gas rose 23.8 percent. The index for electricity rose 
9.0 percent for the 12 months ending February.

All items less food and energy

The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.5 percent in February. The shelter 
index increased 0.5 percent in February and accounted for over 40 percent of the 
monthly increase in the all items less food and energy index. The rent index increased 
0.6 percent in February and the owners’ equivalent rent index rose 0.4 percent. The 
index for lodging away from home rose 2.2 percent over the month after declining in 
January.

The recreation index increased 0.7 percent in February following a 0.9-percent increase 
in January. The index for household furnishings and operations also continued to rise, 
increasing 0.6 percent in February following larger increases in recent months. The 
index for motor vehicle insurance rose 1.2 percent over the month after a 0.9-percent 
advance in January. The personal care index increased 1.2 percent in February, its 
largest ever monthly increase. The index for airline fares rose 5.2 percent in February, 
and the index for apparel increased 0.7 percent.  

The medical care index rose 0.2 percent in February. The index for prescription drugs 
rose 0.3 percent, but the indexes for hospital services and for physicians’ services 
both declined 0.1 percent.

The index for new vehicles increased 0.3 percent in February after being unchanged the 
prior month. The index for used cars and trucks, which rose sharply in recent months, 
declined in February, falling 0.2 percent, one of the very few indexes to show a 
decline in February. 

The index for all items less food and energy rose 6.4 percent over the past 12 months, 
with virtually all of its major component indexes rising over the span. The shelter 
index rose 4.7 percent over the last 12 months, its largest 12-month increase since May 
1991. Several transportation indexes showed large increases over the past year, 
including used cars and trucks (+41.2 percent), new vehicles (+12.4 percent), and 
airline fares (+12.7 percent).  

Not seasonally adjusted CPI measures

The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 7.9 percent over the 
last 12 months to an index level of 283.716 (1982-84=100). For the month, the index 
increased 0.9 percent prior to seasonal adjustment.  

The Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) increased 
8.6 percent over the last 12 months to an index level of 278.943 (1982-84=100). For the 
month, the index rose 1.0 percent prior to seasonal adjustment.  

The Chained Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U) increased 7.5 percent 
over the last 12 months. For the month, the index increased 0.9 percent on a not 
seasonally adjusted basis. Please note that the indexes for the past 10 to 12 months are 
subject to 
revision. 
_______________
The Consumer Price Index for March 2022 is scheduled to be released on Tuesday, April 12, 
2022 at 8:30 a.m. (ET).


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 visit, telephone call, or web collection 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-2022.xlsx. 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 (IASA) 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 2022, BLS adjusted 72 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 2022, revised seasonal factors and seasonally adjusted 
indexes for 2017 to 2021 were calculated and published. For series which are directly adjusted 
using the Census X-13ARIMA-SEATS seasonal adjustment software, the seasonal factors for 2021 will 
be applied to data for 2022 to produce the seasonally adjusted 2022 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. For 2022, 22 of the 81 components of the U.S. city 
average all items index are seasonally adjusted.

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.

(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.
(4) Not seasonally adjusted.
