Sharing the Worldwide Cost of Living Index... and we're looking good

Cost of Living Index, Worldwide

This just “came across my desk” and it is worth sharing with my brother and sister expats here in Cuenca. This site, “Numbeo”, maintains costs of living all over the world and reports them periodically.

The link to the most recent report just released is:

www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/rankings.jsp

They report on 540 major cities worldwide, and use New York City as the 100% basis in each column below.

Cuenca comes in at:

Area Position Cost of Rent Cost of Groceries Restaurant Local
on List Living Living Price Purchasing
plus Rent Power

Worldwide 462/540 38.41 10.38 24.89 37.19 26.71 43.44
Americas 190/204 38.41 10.38 24.89 37.19 26.71 43.44

The less expensive places are mostly in Mexico, Asia or Africa. I was surprised at Mexico until I remembered that last week our Department of State elevated its rick category to 4… the same as Syria.

This is a cool site. If you are considering moving somewhere and want to know the multiplier to cost versus here just divide that city by Cuenca’s.

We are “LOOKIN’ GOOD!”
