Cost Of Living Comparison Tool

The problem facing many recent graduates is where to live and land their jobs when there are many different options to choose from. Besides social factors (e.g., crime rate, community, security, etc.), the cost of living is one of the most important factors in making the final decision. Thus, the purpose of this tool is to analyze and find the lowest cost-of-living index in the following categories:

    1. Overall
    2. Food
    3. Housing
    4. Utilities
    5. Transportation 6. Health

    7. Miscellaneous

The data used for comparison are retrieved from Although the website does
have its own tool for comparing cost of living, this tool only limits to two cities at a time. The cost of Living Tool in this project, on the other hand, has the ability to compare as many cities as the users want and send an email with a PDF report.
