Cost of Living – Greenville Area Development Corporation

The Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) was established in 1961 to promote excellence in community and economic research. The organization produces the nationally-renowned Cost of Living Index (COLI), the most trusted guide for comparing the cost of living in cities throughout the United States. An index score of below 100 indicates the community is less expensive than the average of all cities throughout the U.S., while a score over 100 means the community is more expensive than the average.
