With the February 20, 2014 release of Consumer Price Index data for January 2014, the BLS database included data not intended for release. Interim annual averages for 28 Chained CPI-U series for 2013 were not intended for publication. The 2013 annual average data for these series subsequently were removed from the BLS database less than 7 hours after they were published. The information contained in the Consumer Price Index news release was not affected and remains unchanged.
