Your wage is $3,676. The world average is $1,480.
Your wage is 120% of the United Kingdom average and 248% of the world average.
These figures are in PPP$

Think you could spare a few dollars, you know, some extra cash? :mrgreen:

Humor aside, I'm surprised the "world" figure is even that high.

This is a slightly different perspective on where you are, individually, on the global 'rich list'.

Hmmm.... nowadays Ireland does not pay better than Canada despite being a number of places above them on this list.

I'm skeptical of the source data, at the very least it's outdated.

You're in the TOP 0.001% richest people in the world!

:shock:

Crikey, that IS a different perspective...

Edit: That's just on annual income. I'm guessing I'd be in a similar percentile in terms of debt. :? The joys of the Sydney property market. :roll:
