Compare these values to the overall average of 0.83% per year:

Category Avg Inflation (%) Total Inflation (%) $1 in 1697 → 1700
Food 0.00 0.00 1.00
Shelter 0.00 0.00 1.00
Energy 0.00 0.00 1.00

How to Calculate Inflation Rate for $1, 1697 to 1700

This inflation calculator uses the following inflation rate formula:

CPI in 1697CPI in 1700
×
1700 USD value
=
1697 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 4.1 in the year 1700 and 4 in 1697:

44.1
×
$1
=
$0.98

$1 in 1700 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as $0.98 in 1697.

To get the total inflation rate for the 3 years between 1697 and 1700, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1697 - CPI in 1700CPI in 1700
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (3 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

4 - 4.14.1
×
100
=
-2%
