Inflation by Spending Category

CPI is the weighted combination of many categories of spending that are tracked by the government. Breaking down these categories helps explain the main drivers behind price changes. This chart shows the average rate of inflation for select CPI categories between 1899 and 2021.

Compare these values to the overall average of 2.91% per year:

How to Calculate Inflation Rate for $1 since 1899

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1899 and today:

CPI todayCPI in 1899

×

1899 USD value

=

Today's value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 8.3 in the year 1899 and 274.31 in 2021:

274.318.3

×

$1

=

$33.05

$1 in 1899 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as $33.05 in 2021.

To get the total inflation rate for the 122 years between 1899 and 2021, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2021 - CPI in 1899CPI in 1899

×

100

=

Cumulative inflation rate (122 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

274.31 - 8.38.3

Comparison to S&P 500 Index

The average inflation rate of 2.91% has a compounding effect between 1899 and 2021. As noted above, this yearly inflation rate compounds to produce an overall price difference of 3,204.94% over 122 years.

To help put this inflation into perspective, if we had invested $1 in the S&P 500 index in 1899, our investment would be nominally worth approximately $106,674.39 in 2021. This is a return on investment of 10,667,338.83%, with an absolute return of $106,673.39 on top of the original $1.

These numbers are not inflation adjusted, so they are considered nominal. In order to evaluate the real return on our investment, we must calculate the return with inflation taken into account.

The compounding effect of inflation would account for 96.97% of returns ($103,446.66) during this period. This means the inflation-adjusted real return of our $1 investment is $3,226.73. You may also want to account for capital gains tax, which would take your real return down to around $2,743 for most people.

Information displayed above may differ slightly from other S&P 500 calculators. Minor discrepancies can occur because we use the latest CPI data for inflation, annualized inflation numbers for previous years, and we compute S&P price and dividends from January of 1899 to latest available data for 2021 using average monthly close price.

Compare these numbers to the US's overall absolute change of $-116.04 and total percent change of -96.70%.


Inflation by Spending Category

CPI is the weighted combination of many categories of spending that are tracked by the government. Breaking down these categories helps explain the main drivers behind price changes. This chart shows the average rate of inflation for select CPI categories between 2018 and 1899.

Compare these values to the overall average of 2.91% per year:

How to Calculate Inflation Rate for $120, 1899 to 2018

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1899 and 2018:

CPI in 1899CPI in 2018

×

2018 USD value

=

1899 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 251.23 in the year 2018 and 8.3 in 1899:

8.3251.23

×

$120

=

$3.96

$120 in 2018 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as $3.96 in 1899.

To get the total inflation rate for the 119 years between 1899 and 2018, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1899 - CPI in 2018CPI in 2018

×

100

=

Cumulative inflation rate (119 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

8.3 - 251.23251.23

×

100

=

-97%

Buying power of $1 in 1899

This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for $1 in 1899 (price index tracking began in 1635).

For example, if you started with $1, you would need to end with $33.05 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

Download

When $1 is equivalent to $33.05 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 1899 dollars, the chart below shows how $1 is worth less over 122 years.

How to Calculate Inflation Rate for $1 since 1899

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1899 and today:

CPI todayCPI in 1899

×

1899 USD value

=

Today's value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 8.3 in the year 1899 and 274.31 in 2021:

274.318.3

×

$1

=

$33.05

$1 in 1899 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as $33.05 in 2021.

To get the total inflation rate for the 122 years between 1899 and 2021, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2021 - CPI in 1899CPI in 1899

×

Cumulative inflation rate (122 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

274.31 - 8.38.3

Comparison to S&P 500 Index

The average inflation rate of 2.91% has a compounding effect between 1899 and 2021. As noted above, this yearly inflation rate compounds to produce an overall price difference of 3,204.94% over 122 years.

To help put this inflation into perspective, if we had invested $1 in the S&P 500 index in 1899, our investment would be nominally worth approximately $106,674.39 in 2021. This is a return on investment of 10,667,338.83%, with an absolute return of $106,673.39 on top of the original $1.

These numbers are not inflation adjusted, so they are considered nominal. In order to evaluate the real return on our investment, we must calculate the return with inflation taken into account.

The compounding effect of inflation would account for 96.97% of returns ($103,446.66) during this period. This means the inflation-adjusted real return of our $1 investment is $3,226.73. You may also want to account for capital gains tax, which would take your real return down to around $2,743 for most people.

Information displayed above may differ slightly from other S&P 500 calculators. Minor discrepancies can occur because we use the latest CPI data for inflation, annualized inflation numbers for previous years, and we compute S&P price and dividends from January of 1899 to latest available data for 2021 using average monthly close price.

Inflation by Country

Inflation can also vary widely by country. For comparison, in the UK £100.00 in 1899 would be equivalent to £13,181.26 in 2021, an absolute change of £13,081.26 and a cumulative change of 13,081.26%.

Compare these numbers to the US's overall absolute change of $3,204.94 and total percent change of 3,204.94%.


Inflation by Spending Category

CPI is the weighted combination of many categories of spending that are tracked by the government. Breaking down these categories helps explain the main drivers behind price changes. This chart shows the average rate of inflation for select CPI categories between 1899 and 2021.

Compare these values to the overall average of 2.91% per year:

For all these visualizations, it's important to note that not all categories may have been tracked since 1899. This table and charts use the earliest available data for each category.



How to Calculate Inflation Rate for $100 since 1899

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1899 and today:

CPI todayCPI in 1899

×

1899 USD value

=

Today's value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 8.3 in the year 1899 and 274.31 in 2021:

274.318.3

×

$100

=

$3,304.94

$100 in 1899 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as $3,304.94 in 2021.

To get the total inflation rate for the 122 years between 1899 and 2021, we use the following formula:

CPI in 2021 - CPI in 1899CPI in 1899

×

100

=

Cumulative inflation rate (122 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

274.31 - 8.38.3

×

100

=

3,205%


Comparison to S&P 500 Index

The average inflation rate of 2.91% has a compounding effect between 1899 and 2021. As noted above, this yearly inflation rate compounds to produce an overall price difference of 3,204.94% over 122 years.

To help put this inflation into perspective, if we had invested $100 in the S&P 500 index in 1899, our investment would be nominally worth approximately $10,667,438.83 in 2021. This is a return on investment of 10,667,338.83%, with an absolute return of $10,667,338.83 on top of the original $100.

These numbers are not inflation adjusted, so they are considered nominal. In order to evaluate the real return on our investment, we must calculate the return with inflation taken into account.

The compounding effect of inflation would account for 96.97% of returns ($10,344,666.27) during this period. This means the inflation-adjusted real return of our $100 investment is $322,672.57. You may also want to account for capital gains tax, which would take your real return down to around $274,272 for most people.

Information displayed above may differ slightly from other S&P 500 calculators. Minor discrepancies can occur because we use the latest CPI data for inflation, annualized inflation numbers for previous years, and we compute S&P price and dividends from January of 1899 to latest available data for 2021 using average monthly close price.
