#llg77 on May 04, 2017 :
Liverpool City is a lot better now since they've won European Capital of Culture. Many new modern apartments in the city and by the docks, new museums, a great Liverpool 1 to hang out with your friends and family! That's my personal thought about Liverpool!
#Brownie on Jan 04, 2017 :
Moved to liverpool from London for work in 2008. Contract was for 2yrs, ending up staying till 2013 then moved down south, Liverpool made me more wealth than I ever could of imagined. I love the city. Look around there so much opportunity.
#Peter Robinson on Jul 20, 2016 :
Was born in UK; thinking I will retire in UK.
#Jon Osborne on Oct 05, 2015 :
At the Plaza in Waterloo it is £2.90 to watch a film on current release, so this is a bit misleading
#andrew on Jul 06, 2015 :
The ONS average wage in Liverpool (not the city region, which I think would be a higher) was about £27,800 in April 2014. It is higher than for example Manchester.
#Ifigenia Rangel on Apr 20, 2015 :
Im considering to live in Liverpool, since Im recently a citizen from Italy and my first nacionality is Venezuelan, but due to the problems we are having in Venezuela i want to go.

Could it be extremelly hard for me to make a new life there?
#Jack on Feb 03, 2015 :
The average wage is either massively increased from outliers in a small dataset or I am being massively underpaid, most everyone I know gets at or marginally above minimum wage and pulls no more than £1200 after tax. I have a stable full time job and pull just on 1000
#Michael on Jan 29, 2015 :
I live in Liverpool and whilst your figures on the whole are correct, the disposable income is well off. 2k after tax is around 30k a year which is well above the national average and wages in Liverpool would certainly be below that figure.
#Aly Cissokho on Jul 13, 2014 :
Average salary is higher than mine (graduate 2014), equal on pre tax value.
Definitely not an economically-depressed areas.

Also moved from London.
#CharmedBoy on Mar 22, 2014 :
You could say the same thing about most northern cities over 10 years ago.
#Anonymous on Mar 20, 2014 :
#CharmedBoy
I haven't been there for at least a decade but from what I remember it was pretty bad and depressed compared to the South East (where I come from)
#CharmedBoy on Mar 20, 2014 :
Liverpool is not economically depressed. It has seen one of the highest growths in every area like its economy since the 90s. Get with the times.
#Anonymous on Feb 24, 2014 :
quite frankly, the average salary looks a tad too high to me.. i'm not from Liverpool but i'm English and we all know Liverpoool is one of the most economically-depressed areas in the UK

the rest seems quite accurate, though - with this kind of money you could live like a king
#The Inspiralist on Jun 05, 2013 :
I'm moving to Liverpool to live a more social life than in stiff upper lip London. Thanks for the tip on Bills!
