## How to calculate inflation rate for \$1, 1683 to 1684

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1683 and 1684:

CPI in 1684 CPI in 1683
×
1683 USD value
=
1684 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 3.7 in the year 1683 and 3.7 in 1684:

3.73.7
×
\$1
=
\$1

\$1 in 1683 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as \$1 in 1684.

To get the total inflation rate for the 1 years between 1683 and 1684, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1684 - CPI in 1683CPI in 1683
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (1 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

3.7 - 3.73.7
×
100
=
0%
