This bulletin was prepared by members of the staff of the Office of Prices and Living Conditions as a historical summary covering the scope and method of compiling the Consumer Price Index, and a description of the 1964 revision of the index. Much of the material included in this bulletin was previously issued as separate articles or releases.
