The commission relies on changes in the Gross National Product Price Index (GNP-PI) published by the U.S. Department of Commerce's Bureau of Economic Analysis. The commission relies on a formula using the GNP-PI figure for the quarter divided by the previous quarter's GNP-PI number. That number is annualized.

The inflation figure is for use with FCC Form 1240.
