Cost of Living
San Angelo participates in the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) "Cost of Living Index" program. This index is compiled from data submitted on a quarterly basis from over 300 metropolitan areas. Each participating community "shops" 64 items in their respective communities on the same day of each quarter. These prices for goods and services are sent to C2ER, where a quarterly index is compiled. The national average for each item is given a rating of 100. You can use the cost of living calculator here.
