How to Calculate Inflation Rate for £1, 1832 to 1835

This inflation calculator uses the following inflation rate formula:

CPI in 1832CPI in 1835
×
1835 GBP value
=
1832 GBP value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The UK CPI was 8.9 in the year 1835 and 10.1 in 1832:

10.18.9
×
£1
=
£1.13

£1 in 1835 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as £1.13 in 1832.

To get the total inflation rate for the 3 years between 1832 and 1835, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1832 - CPI in 1835CPI in 1835
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (3 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

10.1 - 8.98.9
×
100
=
13%

Data Source & Citation

Raw data for these calculations comes from the composite price index published by the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS). A composite index is created by combining price data from several different published sources, both official and unofficial. The Consumer Price Index, normally used to compute inflation, has only been tracked since 1988. All inflation calculations after 1988 use the Office for National Statistics' Consumer Price Index, except for 2017, which is based on The Bank of England's forecast.
