Cost Of Living Calculator

Every quarter The Cost of Living Index (COLI) COLI compiles and publishes The Cost of Living Index, a comparison of the cost of living in more than 300 cities and areas across the country. Participating agencies such as chambers of commerce collect prices on nearly 60 different products and services. In an effort to control random error in the analysis of the data, agencies are expected to collect the same data at the same time for every quarter of the year. The Cost of Living Calculator compares the cost of living differences between your community and other communities across the United States.
