Inflation Calculator for Ireland

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) measures the average change in the price of consumer goods and services purchased by private households. The inflation calculator is designed to calculate the percentage change in the CPI between two periods of time.

The inflation calculator can also be used to update a sum of money. For example, if you had €1,000 in December 2013 the inflation calculator will tell you how much money you would require to purchase the same volume of consumer goods and services in a later period. Money denominated in old Irish Pounds should be converted to Euro before being entered into the calculator.

The outputs from the inflation calculator are created using data from Table CPM02 in PxStat.
