Disregard the Anonymous. Average net pay per month in 2020 was 540 euros. Pollution 15 years ago was worse,becose: 1.the petrohemical rafinery was working; 2.comunal heating was on petrol-not on n.gas as it is now; 3.damedge on the forest nier the sity is fare from "clear cut" of all forests... Almost all tap waters in the country are drinkable.

You cannot depend upon prices given by others here because they just throw numbers out there. Numbeo depends upon accurate information and very little is given.I attended college in Skopje for two years. I finished college November 2019.Unless it's high levels of government nobody in government makes over 800e per month. The presidents monthly salary is 1,150 per month. I grew up in Skopje so the average monthly salary is 300e per month.North Macedonia is a very poor polluted country with inadequate waste controls.Skopje was a very clean area about 15 years ago. But the government allowed several companies to clear-cut the forests and another chemical company that promised strict controls of pollution to totally destroy the land just above Skopje. You cannot drink the water anywhere in North Macedonia and air quality is beyond horrible. There's some area's of North Macedonia people need to wear a respirator not kidding. The air in and around Skopje is filled with harmful chemicals that burns the nose throat and eyes.

I don't know who was writing the costs but the average salary here is 400e of two family members working that's 800e. Something does not match quite well:)
