    Economists have collected a lot of data on this and it's very complicated to do international cost of living comparisons. I would be very skeptical, especially given the plans to include "all towns and cities" (enough observations to make the data statistically significant) and to get information from the public. Different groups of people can have very different spending patterns and very different ideas of what is acceptable, for example in hotels and apartments.
