Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Data downloads:


Accessing the BLS Web site to see how much inflation there has been historically for one or more PPI or CPI categories can be quite a project. LIFO-PRO maintains PPI Table 9 and CPI Table 3 inflation rates (not just raw indexes) for all categories for the past 25 years. If you would like a copy of this file, email us by clicking here:

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) posts to their LabStat Web site files containing all CPI and PPI indexes (in separate files). These are posted on about the 15th of the month. These files contain a great deal of extraneous data not needed for Simplified LIFO calculation. We convert the BLS index files to files containing only the indexes necessary for LIFO calculations and make these available to clients (via posting to this Web site) usually within a few hours of their public release for CPI indexes and within a day for PPI indexes. Department Stores Indexes are released at the same time as CPI indexes.
