Disposable income in the UK
Where in the UK can you make the most and spend the least?
It’s no secret that prices and salaries vary widely across the UK. Coupled with a rise in credit card usage, it’s clear that where you live will often dictate how much disposable income you have and how much you rely on alternative means to make ends meet.
Average salary vs cost of living in the UK
To look at the data another way, the chart below shows each city’s average salary and average living costs side by side. The smaller the gap between a city’s red and blue dot, the lower the average disposable income in that city. Notably, London’s gap is about average in size, but much higher up the chart than the others, reflecting the higher incomes and costs you find there.
|City||Average monthly net income after tax (Numbeo)|
|Newcastle upon Tyne||£1,709.01|
|Kingston upon Hull||£1,518.87|
The full results
- For rent, we found the total price per room of a three room apartment to get an approximate figure for the rent a single person could expect to pay.
- To get the disposable income figure for each city, the monthly single person’s rent and living costs were subtracted from the average monthly income after tax.
