This chapter supplies, for the first time, a table that contains
all 56 episodes of hyperinflation, including several which had
previously gone unreported. The Hyperinflation Table is compiled in
a systematic and uniform way. Most importantly, it meets the
replicability test. It utilizes clean and consistent inflation
metrics, indicates the start and end dates of each episode,
identifies the month of peak hyperinflation, and signifies the
currency that was in circulation, as well as the method used to
calculate inflation rates.
