Expatistan.com was founded in 2009 by Gerardo Robledillo, a software engineer specializing in web applications.
An expat himself, he created Expatistan to solve a problem that every expat faces; How much money will I need in my new city?
At Expatistan, we run the biggest collaborative cost-of-living database of prices in the world.
Our database is constantly updated and improved in a collaborative way by expats all over the world.
In the last week alone we've added more than 8,800 new prices to the database.
After aggregating, cleaning up and modelling this data,
we cross check it and enhance it with public cost-of-living data
compiled by international organizations like the United Nations, the World Bank and Eurostat.
