How to Calculate Inflation Rate for £2,413,660, 1822 to 1912

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1822 and 1912:

CPI in 1912 CPI in 1822
×
1822 GBP value
=
1912 GBP value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.K. CPI was 8.9 in the year 1822 and 9.9 in 1912:

9.98.9
×
£2,413,660
=
£2,684,857.75

£2,413,660 in 1822 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as £2,684,857.75 in 1912.

To get the total inflation rate for the 90 years between 1822 and 1912, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1912 - CPI in 1822CPI in 1822
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (90 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

9.9 - 8.98.9

Data Source & Citation

Raw data for these calculations comes from the composite price index published by the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS). A composite index is created by combining price data from several different published sources, both official and unofficial. The Consumer Price Index, normally used to compute inflation, has only been tracked since 1988. All inflation calculations after 1988 use the Office for National Statistics' Consumer Price Index, except for 2017, which is based on The Bank of England's forecast.
