EuroCost International indices are based on a basket of 350 goods and services representative of an expatriate way of living. Those indices are detailed in 11 main groups of expenses:
2. Alcoholic beverages, tobacco
3. Clothing and footwear
5. Household equipment
6. Hygiene and health
9. Recreation and culture
10. Restaurant and hotels
Those 11 groups are split into 40 sub-groups, to provide a deeper analysis of the price differences between locations.
Our indices cover all expenses of a household excluding rent, school and health costs, expenses generally considered apart by companies.
We can also provide indices including housing for all those cities where we conduct rent surveys. Housing and school costs are subject to specific services.
