 CONSUMER PRICE INDEX – FEBRUARY 2017

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 0.1 percent
 in February on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
 reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all items index rose 2.7 percent
 before seasonal adjustment.

 The February increase was the smallest 1-month rise in the seasonally adjusted
 all items index since July 2016. The gasoline index declined, partially
 offsetting increases in several indexes, including food, shelter, and
 recreation. The energy index fell 1.0 percent, with the decline in gasoline
 outweighing increases in the other energy component indexes. The food index
 increased 0.2 percent over the month, its largest rise since September 2015.

 The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.2 percent in February. The
 indexes for shelter, recreation, apparel, airline fares, motor vehicle
 insurance, education, and medical care were among those that increased in
 February. Indexes that declined include communication, used cars and trucks,
 new vehicles, and household furnishings and operations.  

 The all items index rose 2.7 percent for the 12 months ending February; the
 12-month increase has been trending upward since a July 2016 trough of
 0.8 percent. The index for all items less food and energy rose 2.2 percent
 over the last 12 months; this was the fifteenth straight month the 12-month
 change remained in the range of 2.1 to 2.3 percent. The energy index rose
 15.2 percent over the last year, while the food index was unchanged.

                    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.
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




 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 (https://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpisaqanda.htm)
 and the Timeline of Seasonal Adjustment Methodological Changes
 (https://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. 

 2017 Series Adjusted Using Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment

 For the seasonal factors introduced in January 2017, BLS adjusted 40 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 2009 return to normal pricing after
 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
 2017, revised seasonal factors and seasonally adjusted indexes for 2012-2016 were
 calculated and published. For directly adjusted series, the seasonal factors for 2016
 will be applied to data for 2017 to produce the seasonally adjusted 2017 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. 27 of the 81 components of the U.S. city average all items index are
 not seasonally adjusted for 2017.

 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 0.03 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 0.06 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 for All Urban Consumers, 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 "Variance Estimates for Price Changes in the Consumer Price Index,
 January-December 2016."  These data are available on the CPI home page (www.bls.gov/cpi),
 or by using the following link: www.bls.gov/cpi/cpivar2016.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.

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.

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.

(8) Indexes on a December 2005=100 base.
(9) Indexes on a December 1986=100 base.
(10) Indexes on a December 1993=100 base.
(11) This index series was calculated using a Laspeyres estimator. All other item stratum index series were calculated using a geometric means estimator.

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.
