Index values start at 100.0 in 1990 unless another year is specified. This table shows annual data, which are calculated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics by averaging monthly indices. Data are reported monthly from January to December. The monthly indices, however, are available for fewer than 12 months for some years. In both cases, a simple average of the available monthly indices is reported for each year. Data are not seasonally adjusted.
