Value Today Calculators
- MeasuringWorth.com Value Calculator Determines the relative value of an amount of money in one year compared to another using seven indicators for making such comparisons in US dollars between any two years from 1774 to the present. They are the CPI, the GDP Deflator, the consumer bundle, the unskilled wage, the compensation of production workers, the GDP per capita, and the GDP. Note that only two indicators, the CPI and unskilled wage are available from 1774 to 1790, and the consumer bundle is only available from 1900 to the present.
- The CPI inflation calculator uses the average Consumer Price Index for a given calendar year. This data represents changes in prices of all goods and services purchased for consumption by urban households. This index value has been calculated every year since 1913.
