PCE Growth Comparison Graph
Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) is a measure of goods and services consumed by individuals. The Personal Consumption Expenditures price index is also called the PCE deflator, and indicates the average increase in price for all personal consumption. Where the Consumer Price Index (CPI) uses only one set of expenditure weights for many years, the Personal Consumption Expenditure uses data from both the current and preceding periods. Our PCE Deflator page includes a Personal Consumption Expenditures growth comparison graph, along with historic data tables.
