The personal consumption expenditures price index, which is released by the U.S. Department of Commerce, is the Federal Reserve’s preferred measure of inflation. It is released each month and measures the change in prices of goods and services in the United States.

The Fed uses core PCE, which excludes the volatile categories of food and energy, to help set monetary policy. The consumer-price index is another measure of inflation and is reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

PCE measures the expenses of both urban and rural consumers by United States residents. According to the Commerce Department, the index “consists of the purchase of new goods and services from private businesses.” Though additional purchases are included, such as those from the government and expenditures by third-party payers on behalf of households.

PCE by type of product is divided into three broad categories: durable goods, nondurable goods and services.
