The “Prices and Earnings” survey is published by economists at UBS Wealth Management Research every three years. It presents a global overview of the prices of goods and services, wages, wage deductions and working hours, and the resulting purchasing power in 71 cities on all continents.

Oslo, Copenhagen, London and Dublin are the world’s most expensive cities in relation to a standardized basket of 122 goods and services.
