Cost of Living

The EEDA participates in the Cost of Living Index, which measures relative price levels for consumer goods and services in participating areas. The index is based on more than 90,000 prices covering almost 60 different items. Consumer spending categories used in the study include grocery items, housing, utilities, transportation, health care and miscellaneous goods and services. The average for all areas, both metropolitan and non-metropolitan, equals 100. Each city's index is read as a percentage of the average for all participating cities.
