Very confused about inflation data in the past few months. Aside from used cars and energy, all other categories data looks like there’s only a mild 2% inflation. But my everyday experience feels like things are more expensive, by like 7-10%. Do y’all feel that? Is there something I don’t understand about CPI data calc?

I think there is some manipulation or at least its not covering all data points. Items are dedinitely priced more than 2% higher from what I have seen

Inflation is a wide swath estimate. But even if your day to day is increasing it doesnt mean that is everyone's experience.

The conversation is complicated

Yeah that’s why I’m curious, is this everyone’s experience? It’s not a perfect survey, but based on conversations I’ve had and seen, seems like many people are noticing that. It’s hard for me to name one thing I regularly buy that’s still the same price as before

Many companies who know they have a lot of demand raised prices because customers expected inflation, not necessarily because their costs rose. A grocery store might not be esarily raise prices if their costs didn't go up but best believe Starbucks will.

I am attending WVU’s Master of Accountancy program in the fall. The program lets you choose two areas of emphasis, out of tax, assurance/fraud and forensics, or business data analytics. My interests for my future career are in audit/forensics. I’m not sure what other one to do. Other than Excel, I haven’t been exposed to much in data analytics, but I didn’t know if it would be more helpful to my future than tax. Any advice is appreciated!
