How To Move To and Live in Europe
Time to move! These are the European countries with the highest living standards
Can you guess what’s dragging us down?
Europe has always boasted a high number of countries with the best living standards in the world, and nowGlassdoorhas published a report entitled Which Countries in Europe Offer The Best Standard of Living?
Unfortunately though, and not surprisingly, Britain is tailing near the end of the seventeen countries listed, coming in at number ten. The study measures average wages with the cost of living to determine where people have it best.
When delving into what life is like for people in European countries, pay packets aren’t the leading factor, but more what people can afford to enhance their lives.
‘When it comes to compensation, a larger pay packet isn’t always better. What matters is the ability to afford useful things that enrich our lives,’ said Glassdoor’s Chief Economist, Dr. Andrew Chamberlain.
‘Average wages vary considerably from one country to another but the gap between take-home pay and price levels has more relevance to the man on the street. A low cost of living, as you would find in Greece and Portugal, doesn’t count for much if average wages and purchasing power are similarly low.’
Take a look at this list below to see where the European countries rank and why.
