## How to calculate inflation rate for \$1, 1966 to 1967

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1966 and 1967:

CPI in 1967 CPI in 1966

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Canadian CPI was 17.45833333 in the year 1966 and 18.08333333 in 1967:

18.0833333317.45833333
×

=
\$1.04

\$1 in 1966 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as \$1.04 in 1967.

To get the total inflation rate for the 1 years between 1966 and 1967, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1967 - CPI in 1966CPI in 1966

=
Cumulative inflation rate (1 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

18.08333333 - 17.4583333317.45833333
