A Python package for adjusting Australian dollars for inflation.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) publishes the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for Australia and its capital cities which allows for adjustment of the value of Australian dollars for inflation. ausdex makes these data available with an inflation calculator in a convenient Python package with simple programmatic and command-line interfaces.

ABS datasets are generally housed in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets linked from the data catalogue. Working with these spreadsheets directly is cumbersome. The ausdex package provides an Application Programming Interface (API) for Australian CPI data that seemlessly interoperates with NumPy and pandas. It makes working with Australian dollars in Python convenient in a similar manner to the cpi Python package which adjusts US dollars for inflation.

The package is documented here: https://rbturnbull.github.io/ausdex
