I find the cost of basic utilities misleading because it's for a 915-sq-ft apartment. I don't know about elsewhere, but in Minneapolis in most apartments, heat, water, sewer, and garbage are paid by the landlord/management company. Of course, that means it's included in the rent; nevertheless, the cost of heating a single-family house, plus the other basic utilities of water/sewer/garbage hauling, electricity, and AC is much higher than $160/month. My father living alone in a 1700-sq-ft well-insulated house had combined utilities of $450+. The cost for his garbage hauling alone was $76/month, almost half of the supposed total cost of basic utilities.

I second that shit Don Butler! Let's be transparent here, ladies and gentlemen. Don't sugar coat it.

Apparently Health Care is free in all these cities. Well mostly everywhere except USA. Please include that because in your comparison the net purchasing power is subsrantially reduced in all other cities where it is provided by government. And funded primarily from Income Taxes
