# Euro inflation rate in 2023: 10.05%

## Inflation in 2023 and its effect on euro value

€1 in 2022 is equivalent in purchasing power to about €1.10 today. The euro had an average inflation rate of 10.05% in the last 12 months. As a result, the real value of a euro has been decreasing recently. Purchasing power decreased by 10.05% in 2023 compared to 2022. On average, you would have to spend 10.05% more money in 2023 than in 2022 for the same item.

This means that today's prices are 1.10 times as high as average prices since 2022, according to the European Central Bank consumer price index. A euro today only buys 90.909% of what it could buy back then.

The inflation rate in 2022 was 9.90%. The current inflation rate compared to last year is now 10.05%. If this number holds, €1 today will be equivalent in buying power to €1.10 next year.

Inflation rate is calculated by change in the consumer price index (CPI). The CPI in 2023 is 131.86. It was 119.82 in the previous year, 2022. The difference in CPI between the years is used by the European Central Bank to officially determine inflation.

## How to calculate inflation rate for €1 since 2022

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 2022 and today:

CPI today CPI in 2022
×
2022 EUR value
=
Today's value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Euro CPI was 119.8209726973 in the year 2022 and 131.86298045337864 in 2023:

131.86298045337864119.8209726973
×
€1
=
€1.10

€1 in 2022 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as €1.10 in 2023.

To get the total inflation rate for the 1 years between 2022 and 2023, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2023 - CPI in 2022CPI in 2022
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (1 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

131.86298045337864 - 119.8209726973119.8209726973
×

=
