Measuring Retirees' Living Costs.
Lamale, Helen H.
Aging and Work: A Journal on Age, Work and Retirement, v1 n4 p251-58 Fall 1978
The author evaluates the Consumer Price Index (CPI) used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) to make cost-of-living adjustments to retirement benefits and considers the need for a separate retiree index. Stating that the CPI has underestimated inflation's impact on retirees, she recommends revised BLS retiree budgets. (MF)
