Hello. I seek data for the cost of utilities (housing). Ideas? Thank you!
Hi Gwendolyn -
You might look into Regional Price Parities (RPPs) from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA).Regional Price Parities, Real Personal Consumption Expenditures, and Real Personal Income |…
There are several sources for data on the cost of utilities for housing. Here are a few options:
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) provides data on average energy costs by state and by type of energy (electricity, natural gas, etc.).
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) provides data on average household expenses, including utilities, by region and by household size.
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) provides data on average energy costs for different types of households, such as single-family homes, apartments, and mobile homes.
Local utility companies often provide data on average energy usage and costs for customers in their service area.
Some real estate websites also provide cost of utilities information for specific properties or areas.
These are just a few options to get you started. It would be best if you could provide more specific information on the location you are looking for data on.
