Ever the inquiring mind, I was thinking about the average monthly incomes listed in children's community description which is in equivalence to U.S. currency. What is this number really equivalent to? Is it just a conversion of that countries monetary unit to USD? I'm curious because I was recently having a conversation with someone about cost of living in different cities (currently my city is the most expensive...go figure) and it made me think of what the wages listed for some of my kids would feasibly get their families in different areas. For example, $200 would pay a utility bill for me. $200 would pay someone's half of (albeit cheap) rent in a lot of other locations. I didn't know if the amount listed was perhaps based on some averages that take things like into account.
