Alberto H is right, average monthly salary in Mexico City is at MX$366.53/day which makes it around US$655 or MX$9163/month for 25 days of work. I'm leaving an article of El Universal about it, the source they used was the Mexican Social Security Institute and the date was jan 2014
#ruby on Sep 18, 2014 :
I'm trying to move over to study for acting in the Mexico City, San Angel by January 2015. Does anyine know of any affordable room or studio renting available...?
Please please help.
#alberto h on Aug 28, 2014 :
Salary might be accurate as an average, because there are many rich people here, but for the most people its inaccurate, id say it 600-700dll/month its more accurate for most people here.
#Anonymous on Apr 23, 2014 :
There is a big Gap in between. For example. If I made 100 dollars a month and my neighbor made 5000 , the average would be about 2500. So the ridiculously rich reallt throw it all off. I would say that the salary is not accurate. My opinion though.
#Silvânia on Apr 10, 2014 :
I'd like to know about cosmetics prices...
#Anonymous on Jan 06, 2014 :
$12,000 as the "average" is quite inflated. This is not taking into account the almost %60 percente of the population that has to work in the informal economy, most of which make less than $200 MX/day.
#Anonymous on Nov 07, 2013 :
^^ keep in mind it is the average salary, some people make more and some make less.
#Anonymous on Sep 20, 2013 :
Average salary seems low. My cousins live in Mexico and all earn about double stated slary.
