Almost... this one does: GDP (purchasing power parity) - Country ComparisonGDP - per capita (PPP) - Country Comparison
I had never heard of the term before, but now I see how it is useful in evaluating the cost of living in a country. The DR is 98th on the list above.
I am not certain if the actual version of PPP you are looking for is available for the DR.

A statistic is a BIG lie made of compounding little truths.I am usually pretty good at this stuff but I am totally confused by this table... Where does the 13k for the US come from? Why are all the countries less than the US when Europe is clearly so much more expensive? HELP
Because of several reasons, which may include:I'd like to see a comparative list of common food basket items, like rice, milk, bread, eggs, chicken, produce, BEER!, etc.
I still don't understand how so many staple (non-imported) items here cost the same or more than in the US...
See 1st post -- I looked around a bit and looks like you have to buy 2008 but 2007 # don't look too off from 2005 (based on some simple calculations (comapring US GNi/PPP to DR GNI/PPP as it shuld be proportional looks in the 8.3 range for 2007). Couldn't have changed much from 2005 (and that was my point in sending out the 2005 #s).does anyone know the current Purchasing Power Parity for the D.R.? All I can find online is GDP adjusted by PPP, but I can't find the actual PPP rate. Thanks
