Real Cost Measure Legislative Profiles 2019
We are glad to provide the following legislative profiles to engage elected officials on the cost of living throughout California. Each of the profiles listed below illustrates the percentage of households below the Real Cost Measure by neighborhood cluster. Neighborhood clusters, or public use microdata areas as defined by the U.S. Cenus Bureau, are contiguously consolidated neighborhoods consisting between 100,000 - 200,000 people. Due to the small household sample size of several legislative districts, it is difficult to say for example "xx percentage of families in Senate District 1 are below the Real Cost Measure." Instead, the purpose of these legislative profiles is for legislators and constituents to engage each other on the challenges specific neighborhoods are facing within legislative boundaries. We encourage those adopting these legislative profiles to also use county profiles, our public data set, and our suite of interactive tools to discuss the cost of living in California.
