This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for €1 in 2011 (price index tracking began in 1996).

For example, if you started with €1, you would need to end with €0.96 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

When €1 is equivalent to €0.96 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 2011 dollars, the chart below shows how €1 is worth less over 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:

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 2011 and 2015:

CPI in 2011
CPI in 2015

×

2015 EUR value

=

2011 EUR value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Euro CPI was 100 in the year 2015 and 95.82083333 in 2011:

€1 in 2015 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as €0.96 in 2011.

To get the total inflation rate for the 4 years between 2011 and 2015, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2011 - CPI in 2015CPI in 2015

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

Politics and news often influence economic performance. Here's what was happening at the time:

- Barack Obama and Raul Castro, hold the first meeting between Cuban and American leaders since the Cuban Revolution.
- The population of India reaches 1 billion (officially). The billionth baby was named Astha Arora.
- Donald Trump announces his intention to join the US presidential campaign.
- China brings an end to its one child policy, 35 years after it was first introduced.

Raw data for these calculations comes from the European Commission and the European Central Bank's Harmonized Index of Consumer prices (HICP), which is computed based on the reported consumer price indices in member countries of the European Union.
