We’re thrilled to announce we’ve partnered with C2ER to bring its well-respected Cost of Living Index (COLI) to Emsi Developer, our labor market analytics software for economic and workforce development professionals.
Developer users can now compare cost of living adjusted wages and earnings by region, down to the ZIP code level. The new data is available in industry and occupation maps and tables.
C2ER, a professional association of community and economic development researchers, has published the Cost of Living Index since 1968. COLI has been recognized by the U.S. Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and President’s Council of Economic Advisors.
The addition of cost of living data is the latest in a series of data updates we’ve made to our labor market tools.
Subscribers to Developer and Analyst can access historical business establishments (see our research on manufacturing) and regionalized skills and certification data in the Job Posting Analytics section of the tool (read more).
Cost of living data is only available in Developer. We are using a limited composite index from C2ER; you can purchase more detailed analysis from C2ER by visiting coli.org.
