* Current dollars - dollar value of a good or service in terms of prices prevailing at the time the good was sold or service rendered.
* Constant dollars - dollar value adjusted for inflation to demonstrate "real" increases. Determined by dividing current dollars by an appropriate price index, a process generally known as "deflating."
