Mercer's 2014 Cost of Living City Rankings Mercer's 2014 Cost of Living City Rankings Document Transcript

  • Cost of Living Rankings Highlights Press Release Mercer's 2014 Cost of Living Rankings, published 10 July 2014, compare the cost of living for expatriates in 211 cities worldwide. Cities are ranked based on data from our annual Cost of Living Survey, the most comprehensive of its kind. The survey helps multinational companies and governments determine compensation allowances for employees on international assignments. The survey measures the comparative cost of more than 200 goods and services in each location, including housing, transportation, food, clothing, household goods, and entertainment. PLEASE NOTE: The rankings do not include the city-to-city indices of our Cost-of-Living Reports and should not be used to estimate cost-of-living allowances. The calculation of an assignment package involves numerous, complex factors and consideration of an organization's compensation policies and assignment program needs. Mercer offers detailed cost-of-living and housing data for more than 400 locations worldwide. Contact us to inquire about these and other mobility services.

Mercer was not able to collect prices due to the security situations in those locations. We have also left Caracas, Venezuela, out of the rankings as a result of the complex currency situation that includes multiple exchange rates; its ranking would have varied greatly depending on the official exchange rate selected. ¹ The rank of this location is based on estimates, due to US government sanctions.
