### Buying power of €1 in 2006

This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for €1 in 2006 (price index tracking began in 1996).

For example, if you started with €1, you would need to end with €0.93 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

When €1 is equivalent to €0.93 over time, that means that the "real value" of a single Euro euro decreases over time. In other words, a euro will pay for fewer items at the store.

This effect explains how inflation erodes the value of a euro over time. By calculating the value in 2006 dollars, the chart below shows how €1 buys less over the past 4 years.

According to the European Central Bank, each of these EUR amounts below is equal in terms of what it could buy at the time:

2006 €1.00 2.21%
2007 €1.02 2.17%

### How to Calculate Inflation Rate for €1, 2006 to 2010

This inflation calculator uses the following inflation rate formula:

CPI in 2006CPI in 2010
×
2010 EUR value
=
2006 EUR value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Euro CPI was 93.28 in the year 2010 and 86.67166667 in 2006:

86.6716666793.28
×
€1
=
€0.93

€1 in 2010 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as €0.93 in 2006.

To get the total inflation rate for the 4 years between 2006 and 2010, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2006 - CPI in 2010CPI in 2010
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (4 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

86.67166667 - 93.2893.28
×
100
=
-7%
