Buying power of fr.1 in 2010

This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for fr.1 in 2010 (price index tracking began in 1955).

For example, if you started with fr.1, you would need to end with fr.1.01 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

When fr.1 is equivalent to fr.1.01 over time, that means that the "real value" of a single Swiss franc decreases over time. In other words, a franc will pay for fewer items at the store.

This effect explains how inflation erodes the value of a franc over time. By calculating the value in 2010 dollars, the chart below shows how fr.1 is worth less over 12 years.

According to the OECD and the World Bank, each of these CHF amounts below is equal in terms of what it could buy at the time:

How to calculate inflation rate for fr.1 since 2010

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 2010 and today:

CPI today CPI in 2010
×
2010 CHF value
=
Today's value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Swiss CPI was 101.8623 in the year 2010 and 102.5922 in 2022:

102.5922101.8623
×
fr.1
=
fr.1.01

fr.1 in 2010 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as fr.1.01 in 2022.

To get the total inflation rate for the 12 years between 2010 and 2022, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2022 - CPI in 2010CPI in 2010
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (12 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

102.5922 - 101.8623101.8623

=
