This paper shows that the Michigan survey data on inflation expectations is consistent with a simple sticky information model where a significant proportion of households base their inflation expectations on the past release of actual inflation rather than the rational forward-looking forecast. In particular, the model can explain both the mean and cross-sectional distribution of households' inflation expectations.
