Research Partners

Pennsylvania State University

The Truftation Index uses Penn State’s methodology to substitute CPI’s underlying data with more current and objective datasets. We also partner with Penn State to use their Net Rent Index and Marginal Rent Index derived monthly using the RCA database.
The University reports its own open-source alternative inflation index (ACY) using the MRI substitutions. The Truflation goes a step further and exchanges multiple CPI datasets to obtain the most accurate measurement of inflation to date.
