  Based on per-worker per-week costs (for workers getting new coverage under the paid sick days
proposal) and savings for the proposed Healthy Families Act, as reported in Valuing Good Health: An
Estimate of Costs and Savings for the Healthy Families Act (Vicky Lovell, 2005). That estimate used
data from the 2004 Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement and other
sources to estimate the impact of the Heatlhy Families Act, in 2003 dollars. Those figures have been
inflated to 2006 dollars for this tool using the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Inflation Calculator at The national-level estimate from Valuing Good Health is adjusted to individual
states' wage levels using the BLS' Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages

Note on adjusting for inflation:
This tool estimates costs and savings in 2006 dollars. If you are working with this tool in 2007 or a
later year, you may follow these steps to adjust for inflation and provide an estimate in current-year
1. Go to the BLS webpage for the Consumer Price Index at
2. Scroll down to the heading "Get Detailed CPI Statistics" (this will likely be visible at the bottom of
your screen when you first open this webpage).
3. Select "Inflation Calculator."
4. Insert the cost or savings number you calculated in this spreadsheet. Select "2006" for the year to
convert from, and the current year for your desired conversion date.
