CSI Conversion Factors Explained

Most CSI data formats present price values as integers, according to the CSI format found in the “WSJ Price/CSI Price” column of the CSI Commodity Data Fact Sheet. Please note the CSI price and the WSJ price, and when dealing with the CSI price values, consult the conversion factor column on the right hand side of each page. A conversion factor of -1, for example, reflects that the final digit is in eighths. A CSI value of 3746 for wheat would be equivalent to 374 and 6/8, or 374-3/4.
