#tomurcuk timur on Jul 10, 2017 :
I've been living in Ashgabat for 5 years. Given Avarage monthly salary is absolutely wrong. A few years ago ( before devaluation ) avarage salary was between 300 -400 USD . Teacher's salary- little more than avarage- was about 400 Usd. Now it is about 200 Usd. The main problem is most of official data such as inflation , crime rate , avarage income are fake in Turkmenistan and it is well known that all numbers are aranged on a desk. Officially 1 USD = 3,50 mnt but in reality 1 Usd = 6,70 mnt. So I advise to rearange this page according to this reality.

Are you serious? One of the most repressive countries in the world is positioned to be in tops? Credibility of this website is questionable! What a shame! For your information the official monthly disposable salary according to government sources ( which of curse you will not find anywhere since its is one of the worlds worst active dictatorship) is about 350 USD, and that is in capital city, go into a country and that number will drop to 150 USD. And now work on the purchasing power- how long does it take an average turkmen to purchase a low range Ford Focus or Fiesta? If you have no data on this country, do not include it in any ratings, otherwise it just looks funny!
