NOTE

A cost-of-living index measures differences in the price of goods and services,
and allows for substitutions to other items as prices change. A consumer price index
measures a price change for a constant market basket of goods and services from one
period to the next within the same city (or in the Nation). The CPIs are not true
cost-of-living indexes and should not be used for place-to-place comparisons.
