Cost of Living Raw Data

This raw data file contains statistics of local public transit fares and passes, average rent by unit size, costs for the Middlesex London Health Unit’s Nutritious Food Basket and Statistics Canada’s Market Basket, the Consumer Price Index by component, and value of a Food Bank hamper.

There is data on the cost of rent and food relative to social assistance income. The expenditure breakdown of the total cost of Statistics Canada’s Market Basket is helpful in tracking the cost of the components of the basket (food, shelter, transportation, clothing and other expenses) as compared to the total cost.
