C2ER’s Cost of Living Index Helps Americans Find the Best Community for Their Budget with City-to-City Spending Comparisons

In a Nutshell: Knowing the cost of living for a city can be an important factor when determining whether or not to move there. The Cost of Living Index, released by the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), provides an abundance of data that compares the overall cost of living for cities throughout the country. The volunteer-reported information also include facts and statistics broken down into six main categories that are then sorted into a database. The C2ER also supports other research initiatives that reveal important economic and community data. The organization welcomes volunteers for their diverse and evolving database.
