|Florida Price Level Index (FPLI) was established by
the Legislature as the basis for the District Cost Differential in the Florida Education
Finance Program (FEFP) formula for distribution of funds to local school districts.
The purpose of the FPLI is to measure the differences from county to county in the
cost of purchasing a specific market basket of goods and services, at a particular
point in time. Price level indices generally measure one of two things: inflation
or relative price levels. The FPLI measures relative price levels across counties
at a particular point in time; it is a cross-sectional index. Unlike the Consumer
Price Index, it does not measure inflation from year to year.
