This assignment will introduce students to the U.S.  Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data and provide  students with the skills to calculate inflation and interpret the  Consumer Price Index (CPI). Note: The BLS is the primary source  of information on inflation, but their data is re-posted in other  sources, such as the St. Louis Federal Reserve FRED site, among others. 

Purpose of Assignment

This assignment will introduce students to the U.S.  Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data and provide  students with the skills to calculate inflation and interpret the  Consumer Price Index (CPI). Note: The BLS is the primary source  of information on inflation, but their data is re-posted in other  sources, such as the St. Louis Federal Reserve FRED site, among others.

Assignment Steps

Resources: Tutorial help on Excel® and Word functions can be found on the Microsoft® Office website. There are also additional tutorials via the web offering support for Office products.

Use an internet search or  the University Library to locate information on the Consumer Price Index  (CPI). Internet sites you might find useful include the Bureau of Labor  Statistics (BLS) and the Federal Reserve of St. Louis FRED web site  although you are allowed to use other sources.

Develop a minimum 700-word analysis of inflation by including the following:

  • Choose a product or service you currently consume/use, such as  apparel or educational services, that is included in the CPI’s “market  basket.”  Find the annual CPI index numbers for your chosen good or  service for the years 1995, 2005, 2010, and 2015.  Enter those index  numbers in an Excel® file and calculate the percent change  (inflation rates) in those index numbers from 1995 to 2005, from 1995 to  2010, and from 1995 to 2015.
  • Analyze the trends in overall inflation over the last five years and  whether your income has kept pace with inflation.  How has inflation  over the last five years affected you and/or your family?
  • Discuss how a business manager, such as a human resources manager, might use CPI statistics.

Cite a minimum of three scholarly, peer-reviewed references.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied

I was shocked by how your writers managed to deliver my paper on time, and I was among the best in our class in that paper. Thank you so much and I will never hesitate to use you
