Cost of living in cities around the world

Prices and Earnings 2018

Between January and April 2018, we completed a standardized survey on the prices of 128 goods and services, and earnings for 15 professions in 77 cities worldwide. The survey was conducted locally by mutually independent observers, and compared to self-collected online data. More than 75,000 data points were collected and included in our calculations of the indicators in this report.

The result of this study is our prices and earnings report, a global comparison of the cost of living in cities. We separate our findings into prices, earnings, purchasing power and working time.
