The Quality-of-Living Calculator assists you in determining the hardship allowance based on quality of living differentials between locations.
- Select the survey date
- Select the basket
- Select the country and city for base and host locations
The results of the calculation open into a new browser window showing the ten categories that compose Mercer's quality of living index.
You can customise the index components online to exclude or include any of the categories from the total index.
The index recalculates accordingly.
You can view narrative details of the scoring for each criterion in one basket category.
Mercer's recommended Quality-of-Living Allowance Grid allows you to translate quality of living index points into percentage benefits and to define appropriate hardship allowances for locations where it is applicable.
