Abstract: To develop a cost of living for the city of Lumberton, North Carolina and compare Lumberton's cost of living to the other cities included in the American Chamber of Commerce Researches Associaton (ACCRA) index. This information can be a vital resource for Lumberton's Chamber of Commerce in gauging whether or not Lumberton has the favorable elements that advancing companies and industries seek when relocating plants and facilities. This comparison, if it proves advantageous, can then be applied not only to Lumberton but to surrounding cities such as Laurinburg, Elizabethtown, Maxton, and Pembroke to determine their marketability.
