Disposable income infographic – Business Insider

We may all have plenty of preconceived notions about how much those around us make, but it’s just not something that’s talked about much. International moving company, Movehub, recently put together a fantastic infographic that shows us the personal disposable income of folks all over the planet. 

According to Movehub, in this context, “personal disposable income refers to the income per person after all taxes have been paid.” According to the site, the data was collected by Numbeo.com and adapted by NationMaster using a series of surveys carried out from 2010 to 2014. They say that data for North America was prepared by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and Statistics Quebec.

  1. This tells you nothing much-without knowing the cost of living per country. $1500 may buy you more in China, than $3500 i the U.S. Plus I have never made $3500 per month, but have not missed anything that I wanted or any meals. Many people in the U.S. live on less than $3500 per month after taxes

    • I agree that this is not very useful. The big thing I got out of this was that either Australians have very high incomes or pay little to no taxes. If either case was correct we all be moving there for jobs and the good life.
