U.S Basks in Glory with 4 Cities included in the List of Cities with Highest Salaries

The Deutsche Bank recently released its- ‘Mapping the World Prices’ report, in which it has published the names of the cities having the highest salaries around the globe. This report catalogues the cost of goods and services of the most powerful and biggest cities of the world. This bank takes into consideration all the aspects of the cost of living of people. It considers the average rents of a 2-bedroom apartment as well as the cost of a pack of cigarettes, for determining the cost of living around the globe, reports Business Insider.

It is obvious that the people living in cities having a high cost of living have a higher salary compared to others. Such cities having a high-end living cost include locations like New York, London, etc. As an observation, the cities with a high cost of living are mostly located in the northern hemisphere. But some cities from the southern hemisphere like New Zealand and Australia are also power players and included in the list of cities with highest salaries.

The survey done by this bank examines one important factor which is the average earnings of people per month. The final figure is the one that comes after deducting taxes and it is a significant sign showing the wealth of the city.

Now, the cities having a high cost of living will obviously have to tend to the standards of its culture. This is why; the salaries of such major cities will also be on the higher side.
