About ECA’s Cost of Living Survey

Expensive - Cost of Living View of Caracas city enter. By PAULINO MORAN

View of Caracas city enter. By PAULINO MORAN

ECA International’s main cost of living surveys are carried out in March and September using a basket of day-to-day goods and services commonly purchased by assignees. The data used above refers to year-on-year movements between ECA’s September 2013 and 2014 surveys.

Cost of living indices are used by ECA clients to calculate cost of living allowances for assignees. The survey covers:
Food: Groceries; dairy produce; meat and fish; fresh fruit and vegetables
Basic: Household goods, recreational goods; general services, leisure services
General: Clothing; electrical goods; motoring; meals out, alcohol and tobacco
Certain living costs such as rental, utilities charges (electricity, gas, water), car purchases and school fees are not included in the survey. Such items can make a significant difference to expenses but are usually compensated for separately in expatriate packages.
This comparison of cost of living was calculated on a base composed of various developed countries and is used to reflect an international lifestyle. Other indices available from ECA reflect specific city-to-city comparisons, and different levels of shopping efficiency.

  1. I travel all around the world for work, and it used to be really lonely. Now I can go onto Tinder and have a date lined up in a new city before I even get out of the airport!
