It shows the "Dated Date" (how snappy is that?) as Jan 15, '06, and the "Ref CPI on Dated Date" as 198.47742. Wouldn't that correspond to the Nov 15, '05 CPI-U value?


The Ref CPI on Dated Date (198.47742) is for the Dated Date on that page, which is January 15, 2006. November 2005 is listed as 197.6 which is the value for November 16.

The question is, in November when the auction actually occured, how did that CPI-U number get calculated? As actual numbers have not come in!

The reference CPI's the Bureau of Public Debt puts out - see the above link to the forecast for February - Where does the number for the CPI on February 16th (197.17143) come from?
