 CONSUMER PRICE INDEX – NOVEMBER 2016

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.2 percent
 in November on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
 reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all items index rose 1.7 percent
 before seasonal adjustment.

 The shelter and gasoline indexes continued to rise in November, and were again
 the main reasons for the seasonally adjusted all items increase. The shelter
 index advanced 0.3 percent in November, while the gasoline index increased
 2.7 percent. 

 The food index was unchanged in November, as the index for food at home fell
 0.1 percent, its seventh consecutive decline. The energy index increased
 1.2 percent, although gasoline was the only major energy component index to
 increase over the month.  

 The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.2 percent in November
 after rising 0.1 percent in October. The shelter index accounted for most of
 the increase, but the indexes for motor vehicle insurance, education,
 communication, and used cars and trucks also rose. The medical care index was
 unchanged over the month. Several indexes declined in November, including
 apparel, household furnishings and operations, airline fares, and new vehicles.  

 The all items index rose 1.7 percent for the 12 months ending November; the
 12-month all items increase has been rising since it was 0.8 percent in July.
 The index for all items less food and energy rose 2.1 percent for the 12 months
 ending November, and the energy index increased 1.1 percent. In contrast, the
 food index declined 0.4 percent over the last 12 months.

                    Consumer Price Index Geographic Revision for 2018

 In January 2018, BLS will introduce a new geographic area sample for the Consumer Price
 Index (CPI). The 2018 revision utilizes the 2010 Decennial Census and incorporates an
 updated area sample design, changes the frequency of publication for several local area
 indexes, and establishes some new local area and aggregate indexes. The first indexes
 using the new structure will be published in February 2018. Additional information on
 the geographic revision is available at: www.bls.gov/cpi/georevision2018.htm.

 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
 28 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 89 percent of the
 total population and includes, 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, 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 6,000 housing units and approximately 24,000 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 2014."  These data are available on the CPI home page
 (www.bls.gov/cpi), or by using the following link: www.bls.gov/cpi/cpivar2014.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 the Use of Seasonally Adjusted and Unadjusted Data

 Introduction

 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
 five years of seasonally adjusted data. For more information on data revisions and exceptions to the
 usual revision schedule, please see the Fact Sheet on Seasonal Adjustment
 (http://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpisaqanda.htm) and the Timeline of Seasonal Adjustment Methodological Changes
 (http://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpiseastimeline.htm).
 
 How to Use Seasonally Adjusted and Unadjusted Data

 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 changing climatic conditions, 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. 

 2016 Series Adjusted Using Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment

 For the seasonal factors introduced in January 2016, BLS adjusted 37 series using Intervention Analysis
 Seasonal Adjustment, including selected food and beverage items, motor fuels and natural gas. 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.

 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 five 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 five years of data. Seasonally adjusted
 indexes beyond the last five years of data are considered to be final and not subject to revision. In
 January 2016, revised seasonal factors and seasonally adjusted indexes for 2011-2015 were calculated and
 published. For directly adjusted series, the seasonal factors for 2015 will be applied to data in 2016 to
 produce the seasonally adjusted 2016 indexes.
 
 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 five years, but the seasonally adjusted indexes before that period will not be
 changed. 28 of the 81 components of the U.S. city average all items index are not seasonally adjusted
 for 2016.

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 being issued first in preliminary form using the latest available expenditure data at that time and is subject to two 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.
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.

(9) Indexes on a December 1986=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.
