How to Calculate Inflation Rate for $1, 1726 to 1730

This inflation calculator uses the following inflation rate formula:

CPI in 1726CPI in 1730
×
1730 USD value
=
1726 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 4.6 in the year 1730 and 4.7 in 1726:

4.74.6
×
$1
=
$1.02

$1 in 1730 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as $1.02 in 1726.

To get the total inflation rate for the 4 years between 1726 and 1730, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1726 - CPI in 1730CPI in 1730
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (4 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

4.7 - 4.64.6
×
100
=
2%
