For example, if you started with kr100, you would need to end with kr1,195.37 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

When kr100 is equivalent to kr1,195.37 over time, that means that the "real value" of a single Swedish krona decreases over time. In other words, a krona will pay for fewer items at the store.

This effect explains how inflation erodes the value of a krona over time. By calculating the value in 1961 dollars, the chart below shows how kr100 buys less over the past 59 years.

According to the World Bank, each of these SEK amounts below is equal in terms of what it could buy at the time:
