Looks like a good analysis, but how big is your sample pool? what are the average profession experience? 3 years or 10 years? is the salary before Tax? More details on data are needed. otherwise, it is just another superficial article....

Oops. A closer reading indicates that it does. BUT, many other regions (Europe, etc.) have gov. provided benefits that increase their taxes as well.

Does the salary figures listed include benefits packages that most US employers provide as part of the total package?

Do the salary figures from Europe and Japan come before or after tax? There is a large disparity in EU wages: Germany/Netherlands/France is not same as Poland/Greece/Czech. Unless more detail is included, it is apples to oranges comparison.

And in India or China, I can get a manicure for 5$. Here it is 30$. In India or China house maids are common, some live-in, and yet are paid 50$ a month for cleaning everyday. Here we pay 50$ a month for 2 days of cleaning.
