Ranking of countries by cost of living in the world

Cost of living index map.jpg

Data on the cost of living index in the world come from the Numbeo website.


Numbeo is an online collaborative database that allows users to share and compare information on the cost of living between countries and cities.

The cost of living index is relative to the cost of living in New York which is equal to 100%.

If a country has an index of 120, this means that the cost of living in this country is 20% more expensive than the cost of living in New York.
