In the Federal Reserve's projection materials released on 20 March 2024, the median projection for PCE inflation for 2024 (specifically, "percent changes from the fourth quarter of the previous year to the fourth quarter of the year") was 2.4%, the same as it was in projections released in December 2023 for 2024 (Federal Reserve - FOMC Projection Materials March 2024, Investopedia). The question will be suspended on 11 June 2024 and the outcome determined using the next projection materials released by the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), expected on the second day of its two-day meeting scheduled for 11-12 June 2024 (Federal Reserve).
