Living Costs Abroad, Quarters Allowances, and Hardship Differentials
2000 || 1999 || 1998 || 1997

The U.S. Department of State publishes quarterly report indexes of living costs abroad, quarters allowances, hardship differentials, and danger pay allowances. The statistics are computed by the Office of Allowances for use in establishing allowances to compensate U.S. Government civilian employees for costs and hardships related to assignments abroad. This information is also used by many business firms and other private organizations to assist in establishing private compensation systems. The data are published in January, April, July, and October each year.

Detailed explanations of the methods used in compiling the local and U.S. Government indexes are included in the Technical Notes sections of the January, April, and July publications. Additional relocation benefits are described in the Technical Notes section of the October publications. It is important that users be thoroughly familiar with the methods used and their limitations.
