FLAGSTAFF COST OF LIVING
Cost of Living Index (COLI)
The Greater Flagstaff Chamber gathers pricing information for a cost-of-living report every year which is compiled by the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) to create the national cost of living index.
According to the cumulative report for the fourth quarter of 2014, the Flagstaff composite cost of living index was 118.2, or 18.2% more than the national average. The composite index reflects pricing in six categories: housing, groceries, utilities, transportation, health care and miscellaneous goods and services.
Each category is weighted differently:
- Composite Index Housing (26.05% of Composite)
- Groceries (13.48% of Composite)
- Utilities (9.95% of Composite)
- Transportation (12.63% of Composite)
- Health Care (4.89% of Composite)
- Misc. (33.01% of Composite)
