Why did Ajman fall so low in the "Current Local Purchasing Power Index by City" ranking? He was on the 1st place in November and is now on the 211th place
Danylo on Nov 14, 2023:
this city has been ranked 1st in the Purchasing Power Index for a long time, does this mean that you can put away the most money from the net median salary after all monthly expenses (after renting a house and paying utilities, after paying for food, etc.)?
