FOURTH QUARTER 2010 INFLATION ADJUSTMENT FIGURES FOR CABLE OPERATORS
USING FCC FORM 1240 NOW AVAILABLE
As described in the instructions for FCC Form 1240, cable operators may adjust the non-external cost
portion of their rates for inflation based on quarterly figures released by the Federal Communications
Commission. The fourth quarter 2010 inflation factor for operators using FCC Form 1240 is 0.41%.
The adjustment factor of 0.41% is a measure of the annualized change in prices occurring over the period
from October 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010. All adjustments are based on changes in the Gross
National Product Price Index (GNP-PI) published by the United States Department of Commerce, Bureau
of Economic Analysis (BEA). The Media Bureau obtained the chain-type price indices from the BEA
news release dated March 25, 2011 (BEA 11-13) at Table 6 (Addenda: Gross National Product).
The inflation adjustment factor is calculated by dividing the GNP-PI for the fourth quarter of 2010
(111.165) by the GNP-PI for the third quarter of 2010 (111.052). The result of this calculation is
converted from a quarterly change measurement factor to an annual change measurement factor by
raising it to the fourth power.
Operators calculating the Inflation Factor for a True-Up Period which includes some portion of the fourth
quarter of 2010 should enter the inflation factor on the appropriate lines of Worksheet I of FCC Form
1240 as "0.0041." Operators using this factor for calculating the Projected Period Inflation Segment of
FCC Form 1240 should enter this number on Line C3 (January 1996 version), or Line CS (July 1996
version) as "1.0041"
To date, the Commission has released sixty-two quarterly inflation factors for use with FCC Form 1240.
