How to Calculate Inflation Rate for $1, 1675 to 1681

This inflation calculator uses the following inflation rate formula:

CPI in 1681CPI in 1675
×
1675 USD value
=
1681 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 3.6 in the year 1675 and 4.4 in 1681:

4.43.6
×
$1
=
$1.22

$1 in 1675 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as $1.22 in 1681.

To get the total inflation rate for the 6 years between 1675 and 1681, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1681 - CPI in 1675CPI in 1675
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (6 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

4.4 - 3.63.6
×
100
=
22%

Data Source & Citation

Raw data for these calculations comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' (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.
