(a) Sticky Price Consumer Price Index, Percent Change from Year Ago, Seasonally Adjusted (STICKCPIM159SFRBATL)
The Sticky Price Consumer Price Index (CPI) is calculated from a subset of goods and services included in the CPI that change price relatively infrequently. Because these goods and services change price relatively infrequently, they are thought to incorporate expectations about future inflation to a greater degree than prices that change on a more frequent basis. One possible explanation for sticky prices could be the costs firms incur when changing price.
