A new poll has revealed just how expensive it is to live and work in San Francisco and that the pinch is a top concern for voters.

On Tuesday morning, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce unveiled the results of the 2014 Dignity Health Citybeat Poll.

More than a thousand people gathered for the annual breakfast event at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis.

According to the chamber, the cost of owning a home is the number one worry for more than a third of San Franciscans. That's a big jump from 20-percent last year.

Other top concerns include homelessness, rent costs and affordability.
