About this Cost of Living Calculator

This website’s cost of living calculator is powered by data from The Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER). According to the council, “C2ER produces the Cost of Living Index to provide a useful and reasonably accurate measure of living cost differences among urban areas. Items on which the index is based have been carefully chosen to reflect the different categories of consumer expenditures.”

C2ER was founded in 1961, and continues to exist today as a nonprofit organization, “comprising research staff of chambers of commerce, economic development organizations and agencies, and related organizations throughout the United States.” C2ER has published its quarterly Cost of Living Index since 1968. It is comprised of “nearly 100,000 data points gathered primarily by C2ER members located in 400 cities.”
