Who updates these figures? I'm still getting the same numbers I was getting years ago and we are all very much aware that those numbers have changed drastically in the past couple years and even more so in the past decade so why aren't your cost estimates changing with the times?

Does anyone even keep up with this site or monitor these things???

Unfortunately, I'm about to have to find a different site to use because I can't trust this one to have accurate and updated information.
