## How to Calculate Inflation Rate for £1, 1904 to 1905

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1904 and 1905:

CPI in 1904 CPI in 1905
×
1905 GBP value
=
1904 GBP value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.K. CPI was 9.3 in the year 1905 and 9.3 in 1904:

9.39.3
×

CPI in 1904 - CPI in 1905CPI in 1905
×

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

• The Industrial Workers of the World is formed. It is an American anarcho-syndicalist union.
• Bloody Sunday in Russia: troops fire and kill protesters, mostly workers, marching to the Winter Palace in order to hand a petition to the Tsar.
• Potemkin's arrival at Odessa leads to sailors joining civilians in the '1905 Revolution’.

## 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.
