## How to calculate inflation rate for \$1, 1922 to 1923

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1922 and 1923:

CPI in 1923 CPI in 1922
×
=

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Canadian CPI was 9.2 in the year 1922 and 9.2 in 1923:

9.29.2
×
\$1
=
\$1

\$1 in 1922 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as \$1 in 1923.

To get the total inflation rate for the 1 years between 1922 and 1923, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1923 - CPI in 1922CPI in 1922
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (1 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

9.2 - 9.29.2
×

=
0%
