Abstract:

From the Executive Summary: The general conclusion of this study is that the CPI, for all practical purposes, is as accurate a measure of the inflation experienced by retired people as an index derived specifically for retirees. Senior citizens and those nearing retirement age have a smaller basket of goods to buy, relecting their reduced expenses as their children complete their education and leave home or as their mortgage is paid. The rate of price change for their smaller bundle of goods and services turns out to be nearly the same as that indicated by the general CPI.
