                  Consumer Price Index - October 2013

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) decreased
 0.1 percent in October on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S.
 Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months,
 the all items index increased 1.0 percent before seasonal adjustment.
 
 The gasoline index fell 2.9 percent in October and led to the
 seasonally adjusted decline in the all items index. Other energy
 indexes were mixed, with the electricity index rising, but the
 indexes for fuel oil and for natural gas declining. The food index
 rose slightly, with major grocery store food group indexes evenly
 split between advances and declines.
 
 The index for all items less food and energy rose 0.1 percent in
 October. The shelter index rose, but posted its smallest increase
 since December 2012. The indexes for airline fares, for recreation,
 and for used cars and trucks also increased. The medical care index
 was unchanged, while the indexes for apparel, for household
 furnishings and operations, and for new vehicles all declined.
 
 The all items index increased 1.0 percent over the last 12 months;
 this was the smallest 12-month increase since October 2009. The
 energy index has declined 4.8 percent over the last 12 months, its
 largest 12-month decline since July 2012. The index for all items
 less food and energy has risen 1.7 percent over the last year, while
 the food index has risen 1.3 percent.

 Consumer Price Index Data for October 2013

 Food

 The food index rose 0.1 percent in October after being unchanged in
 September. Among major grocery store food groups, the index for meats,
 poultry, fish, and eggs rose 0.6 percent, the largest increase of any
 group and its fifth increase in a row. The index for nonalcoholic
 beverages rose 0.4 percent after declining in each of the three
 previous months, and the fruits and vegetables index rose 0.2 percent
 after declining in September. In contrast to these increases, the
 index for cereals and bakery products fell 0.4 percent in October
 after rising in August and September. The indexes for dairy and
 related products and for other food at home both fell 0.2 percent
 after rising in September. The food at home index has risen 0.8
 percent over the last 12 months. The indexes for meats, poultry, fish,
 and eggs, for fruits and vegetables, and for cereals and bakery
 products have risen over the span, while the indexes for nonalcoholic
 beverages, for other food at home, and for dairy and related products

 October and has increased 1.9 percent over the last 12 months.


 Energy

 The energy index declined 1.7 percent in October after increasing in
 September. The gasoline index, which rose 0.8 percent in September,
 fell 2.9 percent in October. (Before seasonal adjustment, gasoline
 prices fell 4.9 percent in October.) The fuel oil index also turned
 down, falling 0.6 percent in October after rising in September.
 Similarly, the index for natural gas fell 1.0 percent after rising 1.8
 percent in September. The electricity index was the only major
 component to increase, rising 0.1 percent. The energy index has
 declined 4.8 percent over the last year, with the gasoline index down
 10.1 percent. The fuel oil index also fell, declining 4.6 percent. In
 contrast, the natural gas index rose 4.4 percent over the span, and
 the electricity index rose 3.0 percent.

 October, the same increase as in August and September. The shelter
 index rose 0.1 percent in October after increasing 0.2 percent in each
 of the previous four months. The indexes for rent and owners'
 equivalent rent both increased 0.2 percent, but the index for lodging
 away from home declined 3.1 percent. The index for airline fares rose
 sharply in October, advancing 3.6 percent. The index for used cars and
 trucks, unchanged in September, rose 0.3 percent in October. The
 indexes for recreation and for tobacco also increased, each rising 0.1
 percent. The index for medical care was unchanged in October, ending a
 string of four consecutive increases. The index for medical care
 commodities rose 0.3 percent as the prescription drug index rose 0.4
 percent. However, the index for medical care services declined 0.1
 percent as the hospital services index fell 0.3 percent after
 increasing sharply in recent months. The apparel index declined in
 October, falling 0.5 percent, the same decline as in September. The
 index for household furnishings and operations fell 0.2 percent, and
 the new vehicles index declined 0.1 percent after rising in September.

 The index for all items less food and energy increased 1.7 percent for
 the 12 months ending October, the same increase as the 12 months
 ending September. The indexes for shelter and medical care have both
 risen 2.3 percent over the last 12 months, and the new vehicles index
 has increased 1.0 percent. The apparel index has declined over the
 last 12 months, falling 0.2 percent.
 
 Not seasonally adjusted CPI measures

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 1.0
 percent over the last 12 months to an index level of 233.546 (1982-
 84=100). For the month, the index decreased 0.3 percent prior to
 seasonal adjustment.

 The Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers
 (CPI-W) increased 0.8 percent over the last 12 months to an index
 level of 229.735  (1982-84=100). For the month, the index decreased
 0.3 percent prior to seasonal adjustment.

 The Chained Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U)
 increased 1.0 percent over the last 12 months. For the month, the
 index decreased 0.2 percent on a not seasonally adjusted basis. Please
 note that the indexes for the post-2011 period are subject to
 revision.


 The Consumer Price Index for November 2013 is scheduled to be released
 on Tuesday, December 17, 2013, at 8:30 a.m. (EST).


----------------------------------------------------------------------
             IMPACT OF PARTIAL FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

 As a result of the partial federal government shutdown, all CPI staff 
 were furloughed from October 1, 2013 through October 16, 2013.  Data 
 collection, data review and index computation commenced shortly after 
 the end of the shutdown.  In order to minimize the impact of the 
 shutdown on the quality and timeliness of the index, resources 
 normally devoted to maintenance and improvement work were redirected 
 into data collection and index production. The sample of prices used 
 to calculate the October index was about 75 percent of the amount 
 usually used in the CPI.
----------------------------------------------------------------------


 Discontinuation of Department Store Inventory Indexes

 The Bureau of Labor Statistics will discontinue publication of its
 Department Store Inventory indexes after the release of the December
 2013 CPI in mid-January 2014, and these values will no longer be
 uploaded to the Labstat database. For further information please
 contact Sharon Gibson at 202-691-6968 or gibson.sharon@bls.gov.

 Chained Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U) Annual
 Average Indexes Discontinued

 The final revisions of the C-CPI-U indexes for 2012 will be available
 in February 2014.  Annual average indexes for C-CPI-U series will not
 be published for time periods after 2012. (Monthly C-CPI-U indexes
 will continue to be published.)   In February 2014, the annual average
 indexes for the final estimates for 2012 C-CPI-U series will be
 published in the public CPI database.  Table 1CA will not be
 published.

 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 cover 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 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.

 Section on (202) 691-7000.


 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 2012".  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/cpivar2012.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-12-ARIMA Seasonal Adjustment Method.  Seasonally
 adjusted indexes and seasonal factors are computed annually.  Each
 year, the last 5 years of seasonally adjusted data are revised.  Data
 from January 2008 through December 2012 were replaced in January 2013.
 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 54 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 5 years, but the seasonally adjusted indexes before that
 period will not be changed.  Note: 37 of the 82 components are not
 seasonally adjusted for 2013.

 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.

 For the seasonal factors introduced in January 2013, 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 damage to oil
 refineries from Hurricane Katrina.

 For a complete list of Intervention Analysis Seasonal Adjustment
 series and explanations, please refer to the article "Intervention
 Analysis Seasonal 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.

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.

NOTE: Indexes for 2013 are intial estimates. Indexes for 2012 are interim adjustments. Data prior to 2012 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.
(7) Indexes on a December 2007=100 base.
(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.
