About the Center for Inflation Research

The Center is a leading resource for “all things inflation.” Offering a combination of research, analyses and data, background and commentary, and an annual inflation conference, we seek to improve the understanding of policymakers, researchers, and the public about inflation and the factors that influence its behavior.
