============= python-us-cpi ============= THIS LIBRARY NO LONGER WORKS. Apparently the Bureau of Labor Statistics changed their site after August 2013 and this library no longer works. I don't know if or when I'll have a chance to fix it. Tools for parsing the latest US Consumer Price Index To install:: pip install UsCpi or:: easy_install UsCpi Usage ===== In python:: from uscpi import UsCpi cpi = UsCpi() # downloads the latest CPI data # $100 in 2012 is worth how much in 1980? cpi.value_with_inflation(100, 2012, 1980) or command line:: user@computer:~$ python uscpi/__init__.py [filename] The command line version will output a CSV file of the latest US Consumer Price Index, taken from this site: http://www.bls.gov/cpi/#tables This tool also comes with an inflation calculator as demonstrated in the python example above. Source is at Github: https://github.com/Glench/python-us-cpi If you just want the CSV, you should be able to download the latest version here: http://glench.com/open-source/python-us-cpi/latest_us_cpi.csv
