Inadvertent publication of interim annual averages for Chained CPI-U series

With the February 20, 2014 release of Consumer Price Index data for January 2014, the BLS database included data not intended for release. Interim annual averages for 28 Chained CPI-U series for 2013 were not intended for publication. The 2013 annual average data for these series subsequently were removed from the BLS database less than 7 hours after they were published. The information contained in the Consumer Price Index news release was not affected and remains unchanged.
