US CPI Inflation - Bureau of Labor Statistics

Hello All

I am reading through 2016 CFA Institute Curriculum for Level II Program.

In volume I, Reading 11, at page 431 there is an example 8 with accompanying table 7.

Google Books preview is available under the following link
https://books.google.pl/books?id=tlizCgAAQBAJ&pg=PA482&dq=labor+statistics,+US+CPI+inflation+2014+January+4.5568,+February+4.5289&hl=pl&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiGvtfq0uXLAhWL_HIKHaJABm8Q6AEIHDAA#v=onepage&q=labor%20statistics%2C%20US%20CPI%20inflation%202014%20January%204.5568%2C%20February%204.5289&f=false

The table 7 presents data for 2014 US CPI Inflation (Annualized). The source of data is US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

I have checked their official website http://www.bls.gov/cpi/home.htm looking for that table with no result.

I have also searched for it in archive database containing history of CPI-U U.S where all items indexes and annual percent changes are from 1913 to present and are available under, for instance, the following link http://www.bls.gov/cpi/cpid1411.pdf in the CPI Detailed Report as Table 24. Still could not find these figures.

I would like to perform my own calculations based on that table 7.

Could any kindly indicate in detailed manner which table is it taken from as I am foreigner and not familiar with US Bureau of Labor Statistics organizational data set?

Many thanks!
