The Madagascar living cost is an important aspect for many people. That perhaps to make tourism in Madagascar, to work in short or long term or for the expatriates who want to come to live definitively in Madagascar.

Madagascar living cost. Madagascar is one of the least expensive countries in the world according to a report published by the Xpatulator site which indexes the general costs according to the countries. On a ranking of 780 countries, Madagascar is 608th on a world level and the 780th, which means that the country the least expensive in the world is the Ali Areas area situated in Bhoutan whereas the most expensive city in the world is Zurich in Switzerland. In many fields, the cost of living in Madagascar is relatively low compared to other countries even in Africa or in the Indian Ocean, thus Mauritius is twice more expensive in all the sectors than Madagascar. The result of this report on the cost of living in Madagascar bases over the last 12 months by using international indices, rates obtained by the persons in charge and local statistical institutes.

If we base ourselves only on financial indices, we can say that the cost of living in Madagascar is really low in many fields compared to other countries, but we must balance this enthusiasm, because it is not because it is less expensive that it is easier. Indeed, the report of Xpatulator introduce the Hardship criterion to compare the differences in standard of living in Madagascar compared to other countries and the news are not good…

Approximately, that implies sacrifices which we must make if we want to profit from the cost of living in Madagascar.

  • Economic factors: An extreme level of poverty and thus, few opportunities
  • Political factors : The level of freedom of expression and democratic respect
  • Religious factors: The level of freedom of expression and of religion and various points of view on the modern society.
  • Factors of the public service: Things such as the stability and the availability of the electrical communication, the access to drinking water, the medical infrastructures and the work permit.
  • Environmental factors: Such as an extreme climate
  • Factors of security for the individuals and the goods: Level of criminality
  • Factors of education: Standards of the education, the higher education and the potentials in the various fields of study.
  • Factors on transport: Quality of the road network, public transports and the security during the travel.

The difficulty of the standard of living is classified in 4 categories:

  • Minimum difficulty (10% more difficult than of other countries)
  • Average difficulty (20% more difficult than of other countries)
  • High difficulty (30% more difficult than of other countries)
  • Extreme difficulty (40% more difficult than of other countries)

Unfortunately, Madagascar gained the sad palm of an extreme difficulty in the standard of living. What means that we will have difficulty reaching a total freedom of expression, that we will suffer from the insecurity and that we will miss quality in education and health not forgetting the difficulty to create companies because of corruption not to mention a drastic rate of the crime. And we must add freedom of worship as well as the acceptance of the lifestyles such as homosexuality.
