Inflation Dashboard

Updated April 16, 2014

The Inflation Dashboard acts as a platform for visualizing recent inflation measures in the context of longer-term trends. The dashboard's 30 data series capture inflation movements from various perspectives. To provide a snapshot of the current inflation picture, each of the 30 series has been grouped into six broader categories: retail prices, inflation expectations, labor costs, producer prices, material and commodity prices, and money and credit. For more information, see frequently asked questions (FAQ).
