ABSTRACT

Minimum wages and living wages are under discussion. CNV International and WageIndicator Foundation developed a concept and app to get more grip on living wages. In this report we show what research on cost of living can bring us.

The data collection for cost of living in Indonesia took place between June and August 2016. The data collection took place in 8 regions.

The cost of living data collected point to an important finding: the minimum wage is not enough to fulfill the daily needs in some of the regions where our research took place.
