Quality bias in price indices is a kind of mismeasurement if they do not incorporate data on the quality of goods from period to period, as well as their nominal price. Personal computers are a canonical case. Because of improvements in computer chips, greater and greater speeds and features have become available, without substantial increases in price.

Inflation means a long-term trend in the value of the unit of account that affects incomes as well as prices.The commission recommended major revisions to the CPI that would largely correct the upward bias and make the measure a more accurate cost-of-living index, that is, an index that accounted to a greater degree for factors such as quality change, consumer substitution and technological innovation.
