World Income in PPP Dollars. Where Do You Stack Up?


This chart shows the world’s monthly wages in purchasing power parity US dollars. If you click through the image, you can enter in your wages and compare them within your country and across the world. Give it a try!

It’s worth noting that although average wages are fairly high, median wages are much lower. The average is pulled up, of course, by the extreme wages of the world’s super-rich. For example, the average US wage listed here is $3,263 a month, but the median US wage is only $2,197 per month.
