1/ The Census Bureau uses the Bureau of Labor Statistics' experimental Consumer

Price Index (CPI-U-RS) for 1977 through 2001.  The Census Bureau derived the

CPI-U-RS for years before 1977 by applying the 1977 CPI-U-RS-to-CPI-U ratio to the 1947

to 1976 CPI-U.



Note:  Data users can compute the percentage changes in prices between earlier

years' data and 2001 by dividing the annual average Consumer Price Index (CPI-U-RS)

for 2001 by the annual average for the earlier year(s).
