 CONSUMER PRICE INDEX - MARCH 2014

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased
 0.2 percent in March on a seasonally adjusted basis, the U.S.
 Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months,
 the all items index increased 1.5 percent before seasonal adjustment.

 Increases in the shelter and food indexes accounted for most of the
 seasonally adjusted all items increase. The food index increased 0.4
 percent in March, with several major grocery store food groups increasing
 notably. The energy index, in contrast, declined slightly in March as
 decreases in the gasoline and fuel oil indexes more than offset increases
 in the indexes for electricity and natural gas.

 The index for all items less food and energy also rose 0.2 percent in March.
 Besides the 0.3 percent increase in the shelter index, the indexes for
 medical care, for apparel, for used cars and trucks, and for airline fares
 also increased. The indexes for household furnishings and operations and
 for recreation both declined in March.   

 The all items index increased 1.5 percent over the last 12 months; this
 compares to a 1.1 percent increase for the 12 months ending February. The
 index for all items less food and energy has increased 1.7 percent over the
 last 12 months, as has the food index. The energy index has risen slightly
 over the span, advancing 0.4 percent.

 Consumer Price Index Data for March 2014

 Food

 The food index rose 0.4 percent in March, the same increase as in February.
 Four of the six major grocery store food groups increased in March, three of
 them sharply. The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs posted the largest
 increase, rising 1.2 percent, the same increase as in February. The index for
 dairy and related products rose 1.0 percent in March, its fifth consecutive
 increase. The index for fruits and vegetables, which rose 1.1 percent in
 February, rose 0.9 percent in March. The index for fresh fruits rose 3.1
 percent, while the index for fresh vegetables declined 1.6 percent. The index
 for cereals and bakery products rose 0.2 percent in March, while the indexes
 for nonalcoholic beverages and for other food at home both declined. The food
 at home index has risen 1.4 percent over the last year, its largest 12-month
 increase since August 2012. The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs
 increased the most over the span, rising 5.1 percent, while the index for
 nonalcoholic beverages was the only one to decline, falling 1.8 percent. The
 index for food away from home rose 0.3 percent in March, the same increase as
 in February, and has increased 2.3 percent over the last 12 months. 
                   
 Energy

 The energy index fell 0.1 percent in March after a 0.5 percent decline in
 February.  The gasoline index declined 1.7 percent in March, the same decline
 as in February.  (Before seasonal adjustment, gasoline prices rose 5.1 percent
 in March). The fuel oil index also declined, falling 2.9 percent after rising
 4.1 percent the previous month. In contrast, the index for natural gas rose
 sharply, increasing 7.5 percent, its largest one-month increase since October
 2005. It has increased 15.3 percent over the last three months. The electricity
 index also increased, rising 1.1 percent.  Over the last 12 months, the energy
 index has increased 0.4 percent, with the natural gas index rising 16.4 percent,
 the electricity index increasing 5.3 percent, and the fuel oil index advancing
 2.1 percent. These increases more than offset a 4.7 percent decline in the
 gasoline index.

 
 All items less food and energy

 The index for all items less food and energy increased 0.2 percent in March.
 Almost two-thirds of this increase was accounted for by the shelter index, which
 rose 0.3 percent. The indexes for rent and owners’ equivalent rent both rose 0.3
 percent, while the index for lodging away from home rose 1.5 percent. The
 medical care index rose 0.2 percent in March. Among medical care components, the
 hospital services index increased 0.8 percent, but the index for prescription
 drugs fell 0.2 percent. The apparel index, which fell 0.3 percent in February,
 increased 0.3 percent in March. The index for used cars and trucks rose 0.4
 percent, while the index for airline fares advanced 0.5 percent. The indexes
 for alcoholic beverages, for tobacco, and for personal care also rose in March.
 The index for new vehicles was unchanged in March.  The recreation index
 declined in March, falling 0.1 percent, as did the index for household
 furnishings and operations.  

 The index for all items less food and energy has risen 1.7 percent over the
 last 12 months. The shelter index has risen 2.7 percent over the last 12 
 months; this is the largest 12-month increase since the period ending March
 2008.  Several components have increased only slightly over the last year,
 including apparel (0.5 percent), recreation (0.3 percent), new vehicles
 (0.2 percent), and used cars and trucks (0.1 percent). 

 Not seasonally adjusted CPI measures

 The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 1.5
 percent over the last 12 months to an index level of 236.293 (1982-84=100).
 For the month, the index rose 0.6 percent prior to seasonal adjustment.  

 The Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W)
 increased 1.4 percent over the last 12 months to an index level of 232.560
 (1982-84=100). For the month, the index rose 0.7 percent prior to seasonal
 adjustment.  

 The Chained Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (C-CPI-U) increased
 1.4 percent over the last 12 months. For the month, the index rose 0.6
 percent on a not seasonally adjusted basis. Please note that the indexes for
 the post-2012 period are subject to revision.

 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 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-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.

(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.
(r) Revised

NOTE: Revised index for C-CPI-U: Jan. 2014=134.041. Associated calculations, including percent change, may also have changed.
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.

(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.
