RAND Center for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) Data Core Series: Cost-of-Living Indices, 1990-2000 [United States] (ICPSR 27621) RSS

Summary:

The RAND Center for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) Data Core Series is composed of a wide selection of analytical measures, encompassing a variety of domains, all derived from a number of disparate data sources. The CPHHD Data Core's central focus is on geographic measures for census tracts, counties, and Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) from two distinct geo-reference points, 1990 and 2000. The current study, Cost-of-Living Indices, has four longitudinal datasets containing normalized, annualized cost-of-living indices for MSAs, two of them 1990 geo-referenced, and the other two 2000 geo-referenced. One dataset in each of the geo-reference years includes the higher cost MSAs of Alaska and Hawaii in the estimations and predictions; the other excludes these MSAs.
