## How to Calculate Inflation Rate for \$1, 2018 to 2019

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 2018 and 2019:

CPI in 2019 CPI in 2018
×
2018 VEF value
=
2019 VEF value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Venezuelan CPI was 1108976599568 in the year 2018 and 15194100000000000 in 2019:

151941000000000001108976599568
×
\$1
=
\$13,701.01

\$1 in 2018 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as \$13,701.01 in 2019.

To get the total inflation rate for the 1 years between 2018 and 2019, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2019 - CPI in 2018CPI in 2018
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (1 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

15194100000000000 - 11089765995681108976599568
×
100
=
1,370,001%
