Abstract

We study the relationship between relative price variability and inflation in two different ways. We first look at product-class census unit values for five time periods between 1958 and 1982, and find evidence of a positive relationship between variability and inflation. Then we directly update the Vining and Elwertowski (1976) study for the period 1974-91, using individual commodity series from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We conclude by discussing differences across industries in price stickiness.
