All new 2023 Benchmark and Reference Value updates for several countries in MENA & Sub-Saharan African countries are now available from the GLWC and Anker Research Institute. 2023 updates are available for:
Rural Republic of Congo
Rural Democratic Republic of Congo
Rural and Urban Gabon
Rural Burkina Faso
Rural South Africa
All of the updated studies have been updated to account for changes in inflation, exchange rates, costs of living, and policy changes since the original reporting. The reports estimate the wages a worker in these regions would need to receive each month to afford a basic but decent standard of living.
