How to calculate the inflation rate since 2000

Start with the CPI inflation formula:

CPI in 2017 / CPI in 2000 * 2000 USD value = 2017 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 172.2 in the year 2000 and 244.524 in 2017:

244.524 / 172.2 * $100 = $142.00

The "purchasing power" of $100 from 2000 is $142.00 in 2017.
