Personal inflation calculator - October 2008

To read individual comments, click on the map markers

The personal inflation calculator is a tool which allows you to enter how much you or your household spends on key items, and find out an estimate of your personal inflation rate.

This estimate can be regarded as a more accurate indication of how inflation affects you.

We want to map how inflation is affecting households in Britain. To take part go to the personal inflation calculator.

Then you will be able to plot your personal inflation estimate on our dynamic map to help build a national inflation snapshot. You can see last month's map here.

The map is part of a trial to find new ways of showing comments sent in by our readers.
