Useful Websites for Financial/Cost of Living Research

Website Evaluation tools

Think carefully about the sources you are finding and using. Here are some helpful tools that can help:

Currency - How recent is the information?

Reliability - What kind of information is included in the resource? Is it balanced? Does the creator provide references or sources for data or quotations?

Authority - Who is the creator or author? Who is the publisher or sponsor? What is the author's or publisher's interest (if any) in this information?

Accuracy - Is the content readable? Is the content truthful? Is the content correct?

  • Purpose/Point of View - Is this fact or opinion? Is the creator/author trying to sell you something; persuade you about something?
