This section contains documentation of policy parameters in a format that is easy to search and print.

Parameter Indexing#

Offsets#

parameter_indexing_CPI_offset#

Description: Values are zero before 2017; reforms that introduce indexing with chained CPI would have values around -0.0025 beginning in the year before the first year policy parameters will have values computed with chained CPI.
Notes: See April 2013 CBO report entitled ‘What Would Be the Effect on the Deficit of Using the Chained CPI to Index Benefit Programs and the Tax Code?’, which includes this: ‘The chained CPI grows more slowly than the traditional CPI does: an average of about 0.25 percentage points more slowly per year over the past decade.’ https://www.cbo.gov/publication/44089
