## Prediction: Value of \$100 from 2020 to 2025

The buying power of \$100 in 2020 is predicted to be equivalent to \$115.93 in 2025.

This calculation is based on future inflation assumption of 3.00% per year. Use the calculator on the left to change this prediction. Or, use the annual inflation rate calculator to view inflation in the past.

## Buying power of \$100 in 2025

This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for \$100 in 2020 (price index tracking began in 1635).

For example, if you started with \$100, you would need to end with \$115.93 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

Future inflation is estimated at 3.00%.

When \$100 is equivalent to \$115.93 over time, that means that the "real value" of a single U.S. dollar decreases over time. In other words, a dollar will pay for fewer items at the store.

This effect explains how inflation erodes the value of a dollar over time. By calculating the value in 2020 dollars, the chart below shows how \$100 is worth less over 5 years.

This table shows the results of the inflation prediction, with base values from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

Dollar inflation: 2020-2025
Year Dollar Value Inflation Rate
2020 \$100.00 0.29%
2021 \$103.00 3.00%
2022 \$106.09 3.00%
2023 \$109.27 3.00%
2024 \$112.55 3.00%
2025 \$115.93 3.00%

## Data Source & Citation

Raw data for these calculations comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics' (CPI), established in 1913. Inflation data from 1665 to 1912 is sourced from a historical study conducted by political science professor Robert Sahr at Oregon State University.
