How do you come up with the percentages in the Cost of Living calculator?

The percentages in the Cost of Living Calculator are based on the ACCRA Cost of Living Index (COL).
Each of the following categories contributes to the total:

  • Grocery costs

    The prices of common food items (think milk, bread and eggs) change over time. Takeout’s great, but at some point, you’ve got to stock your fridge. See how much of a bite food prices will take out of your budget.

  • Housing costs

    Keeping a roof over your head could be your biggest expense. Total housing expenses can include a home’s price, mortgage interest rates, monthly mortgage payments (plus interest) or cost of rent.

  • Utility costs

    These are the estimated energy and electric bills for renters and homeowners. Depending on where you live, utility costs can differ greatly.

  • Transportation costs

    Even if you WFH, you’ll probably need to hop in a car at some point. Figure out what it’ll cost to drive in your new city.

  • Health care costs

    They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away – but we know that’s not exactly true. Learn the average cost of dental appointments, medical visits and prescription drugs.

  • Miscellaneous costs

    After a long, hard day’s work – including WFH – you’ll need to unwind … or get some essentials. Learn the average cost of everything from lightbulbs and shampoo to gyms and hair salons.
