Sources:  Mercer Human Resource Consulting Cost of Living Survey.

List Notes: The Mercer survey takes into consideration such factors as: food at home, domestic services, alcohol and tobacco, utilities, household supplies, food away from home, health and personal care, transportation, clothing and footwear and sports and leisure. Note: The index is based on cost of living expressed in US dollars. Therefore, if the dollar weakens against the local currency of a city, the city becomes more expensive and moves up the index, even if prices expressed in local currency remain the same or go down.
