Comparative Consumption and Price Levels in African Countries
First Results of the International Comparison Program for Africa

March 2007

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has just released the first results on the comparative consumption and price levels in African countries. They show that out of the 48 African countries surveyed, only 7 have per capita household expenditure levels above AFRIC 1,000. In fact, most of them have per capita expenditure levels of less than AFRIC 500. Three countries, Mauritius, South Africa and Tunisia, have per capita household expenditure in excess of AFRIC 1,500; and a further four, Egypt, Swaziland, Botswana and Gabon, have per capita expenditures ranging between AFRIC 1000 and 1,500. The remaining countries recorded per capita expenditures of less than AFRIC 1,000 while most have below 500. (Algeria, Libya, Eritrea, Seychelles and Somalia are not featured in the report).
