Edmonton vs Paris Numbeo throw-down

Numbeo is such a great site to get lost in if you are interested in living in other countries or just curious about where your city ranks.

"Numbeo is a collection of Web pages containing numerical and other itemizable data about cities and countries, designed to enable anyone to contribute or modify content. Numbeo uses the wisdom of the crowd to obtain the most reliable information possible. Numbeo then provides you with a statistical analysis of the data collected.  In addition, Numbeo provides a variety of systematic research opportunities for its readers with its compilation of worldwide information."

Todd and I love Paris and wanted to see how Edmonton and Paris compare in a Numbeo city cost to live comparison.

"You would need around 4,337.32€ (5,918.67C$) in Paris to maintain the same standard of life that you can have with 5,100.00C$ in Edmonton (assuming you rent in both cities). This calculation uses our Consumer Prices Including Rent Index. This comparison assumes net earnings (after income tax)."

You can do any comparison you like but just because Bangalore is 70% cheaper than San Fransisco doesn't mean it's the next hot place to live.  So take the information and use it wisely.
