The GLWC and The Anker Research Institute are pleased to share new Living Wage Update reports for rural Costa Rica, Limón and Heredia provinces, and the rural southern coastal region of Ecuador, as well as a 2021 Living Wage Reference Value for typical rural areas of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Anker Reference Values for living wages and living incomes are based on a methodology developed by Richard and Martha Anker and Ian Prates, using a regression analysis of the 40 quality-assured Anker methodology living wage and income benchmark studies that have been carried out so far.
The Living Wage Update reports for Costa Rica and Ecuador have been updated to the study months of 2021, May and June respectively, in order to account for inflation, exchange rates, costs of living, and policy changes since the original reporting in these countries.
