Kyiv has become one of the cheapest cities in the world

The most expensive city to live in the world is Hamilton, the administrative center of Bermuda. Its permanent population is about 1,000 residents, all of whom are mostly rich. Kyiv ranked 300th out of 362 in the global ranking. In the European ranking, it is 158th out of 173. This makes it one of the cheapest cities in the ranking.

This is according to Numbeo, a database that allows users to share and compare information on the cost of living between countries and cities. The cost of living in a particular city is calculated based on prices for basic consumer goods and services:

  • food;
  • restaurants;
  • transportation;
  • utilities.

However, living expenses are not included in the calculation. In particular, this includes rent and mortgage.

In general, the cost of living is calculated based on the average cost of living for a family of four. Then the result is compared to New York City, where the base index for this city is taken as 100%.

Thus, an index of 130 means that living in the city is 30% more expensive than in New York. And 80 is 20% cheaper.
