Park’s real income for the last fifteen years. We divide each price index given to us by one hundred. The Price index is a percentage number that shows how much a price has changed throughout time compared to its base year. When we divide by one hundred, we get the adjusted price index. Adjusted price index is the percent change in consumer price index, which is used to measure inflation. After we find the adjusted price index, we divide the gross income by the adjusted price index to get Mrs. Park’s real income. Our Examination of figure 1 shows the Average real income to be $ 37,760.48, while the median is $ 37,853.88. The variance for real income is $426,970.77 and the standard deviation for Nancy Park’s real income is $653.43.
