Buying power of kr100 in 1956

This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for kr100 in 1956 (price index tracking began in 1955).

For example, if you started with kr100, you would need to end with kr1,624.50 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

When kr100 is equivalent to kr1,624.50 over time, that means that the "real value" of a single Norwegian krone decreases over time. In other words, a krone will pay for fewer items at the store.

How to calculate inflation rate for kr100 since 1956

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1956 and today:

CPI today CPI in 1956
×
1956 NOK value
=

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Norwegian CPI was 7.495633 in the year 1956 and 121.7667 in 2022:

121.76677.495633
×
kr100
=
kr1,624.50

kr100 in 1956 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as kr1,624.50 in 2022.

To get the total inflation rate for the 66 years between 1956 and 2022, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2022 - CPI in 1956CPI in 1956
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (66 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

121.7667 - 7.4956337.495633
×
100
=
1,525%
