#Angela on May 07, 2014 :
According to the government report in 2013 July, that the Shenzhen Average Salary of 2013 is 4918, before tax.

But as you are a foreigner that expatriate to Shenzhen from your company generally your salary is much much higher. 50,000 to 25,000 monthly maybe
#Charis on May 07, 2014 :
In Shenzhen, for the normal people it is very hard to have their own apartment, normally the parents support them to buy it.
#Anonymous on Jun 22, 2013 :
PHD's Salary is about 2500 dollers here,and apartment is about 300,000 dollers,it will cost you about 10 years without eating and drinking.That is true china.for PDH
#fifafans1 on Jun 22, 2013 :
Little is extremely rich and half is unbelievable poor.
#Anonymous on May 05, 2013 :
The median salary for many people is just the base salary, not including commission. Many earn over double that amount with commission and receive large bonuses at the end of the year.
#Anonymous on Jul 09, 2012 :
Hi man, that is China, forgot the average salary, someone is extremely rich and some is unbelievable poor.
#Anonymous on May 28, 2012 :
Does not make ANY SENSE if Median Monthly Disposable Salary (After Tax) is 450, interest rate 10.5% and price per sq meter is around 2100 dollar. How small are those apartments? If they are 50, the price is 100,000 or so, with average salary 450, and 10% interest rate = never able to pay off apartment.
