# Referential AUD

The following table provides the inflator/deflator multiplier for calculating referential AUS dollars (rAUD, r\$). It is based on the average annual CPI, weighted average of 8 capital cities, for all groups (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 20101). The formula is the following:

 rAUD = nominal AUD + (nominal AUD * multiplier)
Year CPI A.Avg Base 2010 multiplier
2000 128.4 172.6 0.3442
2001 134.0 172.6 0.2878
2002 138.1 172.6 0.2503
2003 141.9 172.6 0.2166
2004 145.2 172.6 0.1887
2005 149.1 172.6 0.1578
2006 154.4 172.6 0.1182
2007 158.0 172.6 0.0928
2008 164.8 172.6 0.0472
2009 167.8 172.6 0.0285
2010 172.6 172.6 0.0000
2011* 177.8 172.6 -0.0291
2012* 183.1 172.6 -0.0574
2013* 188.6 172.6 -0.0849
2014* 194.3 172.6 -0.1115
2015* 200.1 172.6 -0.1374
