Pay Differs Significantly by Country

Mercer/THINK blog

Mercer’s International Geographic Salary Differentials report offers a compelling look at relative pay levels worldwide to help employers make informed salary decisions to control costs and ensure competitive pay across markets. This year’s report provides information on the gross salary, tax, and net pay variations of positions in 79 countries. In addition, employers can utilize tax and social security data to compare the real value of salaries in different markets and across six employee categories at the management, professional, and para-professional levels.
