10 Most Expensive Cities For Living in the U.S.A.
We compiled our rankings based on data from the ACCRA Cost of Living Index produced by the Council for Community and Economic Research. The Index measures relative price levels for housing, utilities, transportation, grocery items, health care and miscellaneous goods and services (it does not include taxes). A composite score of 100 reflects the national average. So scores lower than 100 reflect a lower-than-average cost of living, and scores higher than 100 reflect a higher-than-average cost of living. Median
household income and average home prices are from the
Toronto-based Martin Prosperity Institute. Our sample includes
all cities with metropolitan areas of at least 75,000 residents.
