## How to Calculate Inflation Rate for €100, 2000 to 2012

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 2000 and 2012:

CPI in 2012 CPI in 2000
×
2000 EUR value
=
2012 EUR value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Euro CPI was 75.9275 in the year 2000 and 98.215 in 2012:

98.21575.9275
×
€100
=
€129.35

€100 in 2000 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as €129.35 in 2012.

To get the total inflation rate for the 12 years between 2000 and 2012, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2012 - CPI in 2000CPI in 2000
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (12 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

98.215 - 75.927575.9275
×
100
=
29%
