The cost of living index is based on the composite price of groceries, housing, utilities, transportation, health care, clothing and entertainment.
Cost of living indexes will generally be higher in areas that offer access to beaches, culture, arts and recreation. In addition areas, that offer a wider variety of services such as health and education will run higher due to higher wages, and increased quality of living.
A figure of 100 points is used as an average both for the USA and Florida

Melbourne Florida 5-28-08. Per Melbourne Broker Ron J. Uhland owner of Mailand Realty LLC, The Cost of Living stats are one of the most looked at pages on our site. If you take our rate at 92 and compare it to
 Miami at 138 and the keys at 168-it makes Brevard County a very desirable place to live.

When asked to elaborate, Ron further said- Basically what this means is that-your wages will go much further if you live here vs other places in the state. For example-If you were relocating from Portland Oregon (whose rate is 120) to Melbourne fl, and you currently make $50,000 per year, the formula is as follows-
Take the destination index, in this case Melbourne-92.72 and divide by Portland’s index-120, then multiply by a salary of $50,000. This will give you a figure of $38,633.00 which you would be required to make in Melbourne to have the same quality of life as you did in Portland.
