About the Inflation Tool

This tool gives an estimate of what the value of items would have been in different years, based on the general rate of inflation.

When the items are adjusted to take into account inflation they are said to be in real terms allowing a more meaningful comparison.

The inflation figures used in calculating real term values in this tool are taken from HM Treasury (external website).
