Anyone know of where I can find the Cost of Living rate
for the Bay Area. Our employer keeps using the national rate and I believe that the Bay Area cost of living is a higher percentage than the national number.
Thank You!

You might try the Bureau of Labor Statistics. I believe they're at www.bls.gov , but I don't know for sure.

I live in the SF Bay Area and work for the Fed. Gov. We are paid about 8% more than the "base pay" to adjust for the higher living costs. You should be able to get the information from here: http://stats.bls.gov/ro9home.htm

I can tell you housing prices are HIGH!

Check out http://www.homefair.com. It has several calculators, one that compares cost of living between cities.
