Consumer Price Index (CPI) for December 2013
Below is the CPI when food and energy are subtracted from the equation, also known as the "core CPI":
The above numbers represent the seasonally adjusted, month-to-month change in prices for a specific group of goods and services that consumers buy, and is, therefore, a very important part of the overall inflation picture for the country.
The "predicted" figure is what economists and Wall Street forecasters were expecting, while the "actual" is the true or real figure.
General categories that constitute the CPI are:
- Food & Beverages
- Miscellaneous Goods & Services (grooming expenses, etc.)
