World Map: Monthly Personal Disposable Income Around the Globe

This map shows the difference in Monthly Personal Disposable Income around the world using data from 2014. In this context personal disposable income refers to the income per person after all taxes have been paid.

Unsurprisingly, in terms of disposable income Switzerland leads the world by a huge margin, with an average disposable income of $6300, which is 2 to 3 times that of its neighbours - Germany ($2850), France ($2,760) and Italy ($2,120).

United States has an average personal disposable income of $3,258 per month which is only about a sixth higher than Canada's average. However,it's worth pointing out the Personal Disposable Income can vary greatly between states / provinces or territories. For instance in Washington D.C. the Personal Disposable Income ($5,450) is roughly double that of Mississippi ($2,650).

The data was collected by Numbeo, the world's largest database of user-contributed data on costs and prices around the world, and adapted by NationMaster, using a series of surveys carried out from 2010 to 2014 throughout each of the mapped countries.

The maps were created by MoveHub.
