Stockton and Tracy are Among the Most Affordable Cities in California
March 19, 2015
Where can the average person afford to live in California? Stockton and Tracy are among the least expensive urban areas of California according to cost-of-living calculations that allow anyone to easily compare prices here to communities across the nation.
Both cities have recently become included in those cost-of-living calculations, which show that the cost of living in Stockton is 9 percent and Tracy 24 percent higher than the U.S. average.
Researchers at the Business Forecasting Center collected cost data for the area — pricing groceries, housing, utilities, transportation, health care and more — and submitted it to the Council for Community and Economic Research, which has validated, calculated and published cost of living index data at the local level since 1968.
