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.
