\$1 in 1993 is equivalent in purchasing power to about \$1.00 in 1994. The dollar had an average inflation rate of 0.17% per year between 1993 and 1994, producing a cumulative price increase of 0.17%. Purchasing power decreased by 0.17% in 1994 compared to 1993. On average, you would have to spend 0.17% more money in 1994 than in 1993 for the same item.

## How to calculate inflation rate for \$1, 1993 to 1994

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1993 and 1994:

CPI in 1994 CPI in 1993
×
=

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Canadian CPI was 85.56666667 in the year 1993 and 85.70833333 in 1994:

85.7083333385.56666667
×
\$1
=
\$1.00

\$1 in 1993 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as \$1.00 in 1994.

To get the total inflation rate for the 1 years between 1993 and 1994, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1994 - CPI in 1993CPI in 1993
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (1 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

85.70833333 - 85.5666666785.56666667

=
0%
