The ACCRA index attempts to measure the cost of living among U.S. cities. The ACCRA index is set at 100 for the average U.S. city. A number higher than 100 means that prices are higher than average, and a number lower than 100 means that prices are lower than average. This index allows comparison between cities, but cannot abe used over and does not measure inflation. The ACCRA indexes make price comparisons based on an average mid-manager's budget.
