 CONSUMER PRICE INDEX – APRIL 2014


 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 
 0.3 percent in April on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S. Bureau 
 of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all 
 items index increased 2.0 percent before seasonal adjustment.

 The indexes for gasoline, shelter, and food all rose in April and 
 contributed to the seasonally adjusted all items increase. The gasoline 
 index rose 2.3 percent; this led to the first increase in the energy 
 index since January, despite declines in the electricity and fuel oil 
 indexes. The food index rose 0.4 percent for the third month in a row, 
 as the index for meats rose sharply.

 The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.2 percent in April, 
 with most of its major components posting increases, including shelter, 
 medical care, airline fares, new vehicles, used cars and trucks, and 
 recreation. The indexes for apparel, household furnishings and operations, 
 and personal care were all unchanged in April.

 The all items index increased 2.0 percent over the last 12 months; this 
 compares to a 1.5 percent increase for the 12 months ending March, and is 
 the largest 12-month increase since July. The index for all items less food 
 and energy has increased 1.8 percent over the last 12 months. The energy 
 index has risen 3.3 percent, and the food index has advanced 1.9 percent 
 over the span.

 Consumer Price Index Data for April 2014

 Food

 The food index rose 0.4 percent in April. The index for food at home, which 
 rose 0.5 percent in both February and March, increased 0.4 percent in April. 
 The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs rose 1.5 percent in April and 
 has increased 3.9 percent over the last three months. The index for meats 
 rose 2.9 percent, its largest increase since November 2003. The index for 
 fruits and vegetables also continued to rise, increasing 0.7 percent. The 
 dairy index also rose in April; its 0.5 percent advance was its sixth increase 
 in a row. In contrast to these increases, the index for other food at home 
 declined 0.2 percent, and the nonalcoholic beverages index declined for the 
 fourth month in a row, falling 0.1 percent. The index for cereals and bakery 
 products was unchanged in April. The food at home index has risen 1.7 percent 
 over the past 12 months, with the index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs up 
 6.4 percent over the span, the largest increase among the major grocery store 
 food groups. The index for food away from home rose 0.3 percent in April, 
 the third straight such increase, and has increased 2.2 percent over the last 
 12 months. 

 Energy

 The energy index increased 0.3 percent in April after declining in February 
 and March. The index for gasoline rose 2.3 percent in April. (Before seasonal 
 adjustment, gasoline prices rose 3.6 percent in April). The index for natural 
 gas also increased, rising 0.3 percent after increasing more sharply in 
 previous months. In contrast, the fuel oil index fell 3.0 percent in April 
 after a 2.9 percent decline in March. The electricity index declined sharply 
 in April, falling 2.6 percent, its largest decline since 1986. Much of this 
 decline can be attributed to “climate credits” applied to utility bills in 
 California. The energy index has increased 3.3 percent over the past 12 months, 
 with all major components increasing over that time period. The index for 
 natural gas rose 11.8 percent over the span, while the gasoline index increased 
 2.4 percent and the electricity index advanced 2.1 percent.

 The index for all items less food and energy increased 0.2 percent in April, 
 the same increase as in March. The shelter index, which rose 0.3 percent in 
 March, increased 0.2 percent in April. The rent index increased 0.3 percent, 
 the index for owners’ equivalent rent advanced 0.2 percent, and the index for 
 lodging away from home rose 0.4 percent. The medical care index rose 0.3 percent 
 in April, with the indexes for medical care services and medical care commodities 
 both increasing 0.3 percent. The index for airline fares rose sharply in April, 
 increasing 2.6 percent, its largest increase since November 2009. The new vehicles 
 index increased 0.3 percent in April, and the index for used cars and trucks rose 
 0.5 percent. The recreation index, which declined in March, rose 0.2 percent in 
 April. The tobacco index rose 0.1 percent, the same increase as in March. The 
 indexes for apparel, for household furnishings and operations, and for personal 
 care were all unchanged in April.

 12 months. This figure has remained in the range of 1.6 percent to 1.8 percent 
 for 13 months in a row. The shelter index has increased 2.8 percent over the last 
 12 months; this figure has been trending upward. The medical care index has risen 
 2.4 percent over the span. The new vehicles index has risen 0.4 percent, while 
 the index for used cars and trucks has advanced 0.2 percent.

 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 29 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
 88 percent of the total population and include 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, and 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 4,000
 housing units and approximately 26,000 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 othermonth 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 2013".
 These data are available on the CPI home page (http://www.bls.gov/cpi), or by
 using the following link: http://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpivar2013.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 Seasonally Adjusted and Unadjusted Data

 Because price data are used for different purposes by different groups, the
 Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes seasonally adjusted as well as unadjusted
 changes each month.

 For analyzing general 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.

 The unadjusted data are of primary interest to consumers concerned about the
 prices they actually pay.  Unadjusted data also are 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.

 Seasonal factors used in computing the seasonally adjusted indexes are derived
 by the X-13ARIMA-SEATS Seasonal Adjustment Method.  Seasonally adjusted indexes
 and seasonal factors are computed annually.  Each year, the last five years of
 seasonally adjusted data are revised. Data from January 2009 through December
 2013 were replaced in January 2014.  Exceptions to the usual revision schedule
 were: the updated seasonal data at the end of 1977 replaced data from 1967 
 through 1977; and, in January 2002, dependently seasonally adjusted series were
 revised for January 1987-December 2001 as a result of a change in the aggregation
 weights for dependently adjusted series. For further information, please see
 Aggregation of Dependently Adjusted Seasonally Adjusted Series, in the October
 2001 issue of the CPI Detailed Report.

 Effective with the publication of data from January 2006 through December 2010
 in January 2011, the Video and audio series and the Information technology,
 hardware and services series were changed from independently adjusted to
 dependently adjusted.  This resulted in an increase in the number of seasonal
 components used in deriving seasonal movement of the All items and 64 other lower
 level aggregations, from 73 for the publication of January 1998 through December
 2005 data to 82 for the publication of seasonally adjusted data for January 2006
 and later.  Each year the seasonal status of every series is reevaluated based
 upon certain statistical criteria. If any of the 82 components 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. Note: 35 of the 82 components are not seasonally
 adjusted for 2014.

 Seasonally adjusted data, including the all items index levels, are subject to
 revision for up to five years after their original release. For this reason,
 BLS advises against the use of these data in escalation agreements.

 Effective with the calculation of the seasonal factors for 1990, the Bureau of
 Labor Statistics has used an enhanced seasonal adjustment procedure called
 Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment for some CPI series. Intervention
 Analysis Seasonal Adjustment allows for better estimates of seasonally
 adjusted data.  Extreme values and/or sharp movements which might distort the
 seasonal pattern are estimated and removed from the data prior to calculation of
 seasonal factors. Beginning with the calculation of seasonal factors for 1996,
 X-12-ARIMA software was used for Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment. In
 2014, for the 2009-2013 revisions, the Bureau of Labor Statistics began using
 X-13ARIMA-SEATS to perform the seasonal adjustment of CPI series, including
 Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment for certain series.

 For the seasonal factors introduced in January 2014, BLS adjusted 31 series using
 Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment, including selected food and beverage
 items, motor fuels, electricity and vehicles.  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.

 Adjustment", located on our website at http://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpisapage.htm.

(1) Foods, fuels, and several other items are priced every month in all areas. Most other goods and services are priced as indicated: M - Every month. 1 - January, March, May, July, September, and November. 2 - February, April, June, August, October, and December.
(2) Regions defined as the four Census regions.
(3) Indexes on a December 1996=100 base.
(4) Indexes on a December 1986=100 base.
(5) In addition, the following metropolitan areas are published semiannually and appear in Tables 34 and 39 of the January and July issues of the CPI Detailed Report: Anchorage, AK; Cincinnati-Hamilton, OH-KY-IN; Denver-Boulder-Greeley, CO; Honolulu, HI; Kansas City, MO-KS; Milwaukee-Racine, WI; Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN-WI; Phoenix-Mesa, AZ; Pittsburgh, PA; Portland-Salem, OR-WA; St. Louis, MO-IL; San Diego, CA; Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL.
(6) Indexes on a November 1996=100 base.

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.

(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.

NOTE: Indexes for 2014 are intial estimates. Indexes for 2013 are interim adjustments. Data prior to 2013 are final.
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.
(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.
