    Default Where are you on the global pay scale?

    Do you earn more or less than the world's average wage? Type in your monthly salary and we'll give you the answer.

    The average wage, calculated by the International Labour Organization, is published here for the first time. It's a rough figure based on data from 72 countries, omitting some of the world's poorest nations. All figures are adjusted to reflect variations in the cost of living from one country to another, and as Ruth Alexander of BBC radio's More or Less programme underlines, it's all about wage earners, not the self-employed or people on benefits.

    You don't have to post your result here, it's just for your own personal interest.

    Wow. I am in the 98th percentile of wages in Canada.



    That is kind of... sad, because I am not wealthy by any means.

    Your wage is $****. The world average is $1,480.
    Your wage is 60% of the United Kingdom average and 125% of the world average.
    These figures are in PPP$
    Without revealing too much Not doing too bad on world average.

    Smile nobody 'lives' on $2.00 a day !

    No one can live on 2 bucks a day. (Canadian or American bucks)

    What is the minimum cost to purchase enough calories (1200 calories) to support an adult male of the species just above subsistence ?

    I estimate that to be in the $ 10.00 dollars a day range for Canada.

    Any thoughts ?
