Quarter 2 Data Collection and Publication Cancelled

We appreciate our data contributors and subscribers who make the Cost of Living Index possible. Given the current public health situation and to ensure the safety and well-being of our participants, we are skipping Quarter 2, 2020 and replacing it with a data collection in Quarter 4, 2020. In lieu of collecting data in April, we will price data October 15 – 17, 2020 to ensure three quarterly collections for 2020. The Quarter 3 data collection July 9 – 11th will remain as schedule.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and make additional updates and adjustments as needed. The revised 2020 schedule is below – updates on the collection, data entry, and publication deadlines can also be found on the COLI Participant Page. We will also share them with you directly if there are any changes in our plans.
