Consumer Price Index (CPI)-Tucson

There is no Consumer Price Index  (CPI) for Tucson. 

 “There is no consistent study of consumer prices for Tucson, and the study done for the Phoenix area isn't entirely comparable to the national survey.” There are CPIs for various cities in the United States.  The closest thing to Tucson is the Pacific Cities and U.S. City Average Historical Series. You can find further information at:

Main Library has a resource that compares cost of living in various cities called ACCRA Cost of Living index.
