What is a dollar worth?

Recently, I came across a website that can measure worth between certain years. I checked out what a dollar is now worth compared to when I was born in 1962.

In 2005, $1.00 from 1962 is worth:
$6.45 using the Consumer Price Index
$5.23 using the GDP deflator
$8.00 using the value of consumer bundle
$7.44 using the unskilled wage
$13.35 using the nominal GDP per capita
$21.27 using the relative share of GDP

Wow, how times have changed…
