Study Criteria:

To compile a list of the world’s most expensive and affordable countries, CEOWORLD magazine collects and analyze the following metrics from all the countries:

  • Cost of living
  • Rent
  • Groceries
  • Eating out
  • Purchasing power

CEOWORLD magazine then assigns each country an average score using these metrics. The score of each country is then compared with New York, which serves as a benchmark with a score of 100 for the entire list.

Countries with a score higher than the score of New York are attributed as expensive countries while those with a score lower than New York are attributed as affordable.

For instance, Switzerland has an average score of 122.4, meaning it is way expensive than New York. On the other hand, Pakistan has an average score of 21.98 which makes it the most affordable country in the world.

    Imran Khan is working so hard to get out of that list, and making Pakistan very expensive to live.

    • Inflation has reached double digits. And our PM thinks he is doing good. Rate of unemployment has increased drastically and it is said that it will take 20 years to fix the current mess. Naya Pakistan seems so beautiful.

  • Pakistani’s truly are ungrateful. Do you have any idea the state of the Economy, the shambles it was left in after decades of abuse. How do you propose the PM rectify it? None of you care for the country otherwise you would realise, short term pain is essential for future growth.

    • Good to see a positive thinker among those whose only knows criticism. Brothers with due respect, being living in realistic world give your PM more time to settle things. Of-course this will take time so be patient and be positive I can request only. And dont forget that nation is now in safe hands by all means.
      “Long Live Pakistan” and May Allah protect people who are putting their efforts to build a stronger Pakistan. ( Ameen )
