# Euro inflation rate in 2024: 0.76%

## Inflation in 2024 and its effect on euro value

€1 in 2023 is equivalent in purchasing power to about €1.01 today. The euro had an average inflation rate of 0.76% in the last 12 months. As a result, the real value of a euro has been decreasing recently. Purchasing power decreased by 0.76% in 2024 compared to 2023. On average, you would have to spend 0.76% more money in 2024 than in 2023 for the same item.

This means that today's prices are 1.01 times as high as average prices since 2023, according to the European Central Bank consumer price index. A euro today only buys 99.010% of what it could buy back then.

The inflation rate in 2023 was 6.28%. The current inflation rate compared to the end of last year is now 0.76%. If this number holds, €1 today will be equivalent in buying power to €1.01 next year.

Inflation rate is calculated by change in the consumer price index (CPI). The CPI in 2024 is 127.77. It was 126.81 in the previous year, 2023. 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 2023

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 2023 and today:

CPI today CPI in 2023
×
2023 EUR value
=
Today's value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Euro CPI was 126.8118182 in the year 2023 and 127.77 in 2024:

127.77126.8118182
×
€1
=
€1.01

€1 in 2023 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as €1.01 in 2024.

To get the total inflation rate for the 1 years between 2023 and 2024, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2024 - CPI in 2023CPI in 2023
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (1 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

127.77 - 126.8118182126.8118182

=
1%
