It was an option in the chart settings: Forecast / MAX / Compare / Pick country: Czech Republic / Pick indicator: Consumer Price Index CPI). Here is the result.

My calculation of the average growth rate

Now, the PX index is worth 913.06 points (14 Aug 2020). The PX index was worth 335.20 points in history (7 Sep 1993) according to PX Statistics. This is an increase of 173 percent during its 27-year history (see calculation):

913335×100=2.73×100=273 %273 %  100 % =173 %

When we calculate the geometric mean of the value 2.73, we get the average growth rate of the index, which is 1.038. This corresponds to an average growth of 3.8 percent per year.

2.7327=1.0381.038  1 = 0.038 0.038 × 100 = 3.8 %

You can compare this with the inflation rate in the Czech Republic in recent years. Note: the tracked period is not exactly the same, however you can adjust the calculation for the period you want to track.
