The above data describe the CPI for all items. Also of note is the **Core CPI**, which measures inflation for all items except for the more volatile categories of food and energy.
Core inflation averaged 2.04% per year between 1995 and 2018 (vs all-CPI inflation of 2.9495150866471143%), for an inflation total of 59.12%.

When using the core inflation measurement, $90,000,000 in 1995 is equivalent in buying power to $143,209,870.85 in 2018, a difference of $53,209,870.85. Recall that for All Items, the converted amount is $148,822,440.94 with a difference of $58,822,440.94.

In 1995, core inflation was 3.02%.

Politics and news often influence economic performance. Here's what was happening at the time:

- Bosnian Serbs massacre over 7,000 Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica.
- Scientists discover the Hale-Bopp Comet; which later became visible to the naked eye.
- Signing of the Dayton Agreement in Paris in order to end conflicts between former Yugoslavian republics
- 170 countries agree to the unconditional and indefinite extending of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty.
- Austria, Finland and Sweden accede to the European Union.

Raw data for these calculations comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index (CPI), established in 1913. Inflation data from 1665 to 1912 is sourced from a historical study conducted by political science professor Robert Sahr at Oregon State University.
