What would be a good salary in Argentina?

The Department of Labour, Employment and Social Security has released August data from its Average Taxable Earnings of Stable Workers (RIPTE) report.

This report shows that the average salary of registered workers in Argentina reached 155,611.28 pesos per month in August 2022. This means that a “good salary” in the country would be one that exceeds this amount in August or September.

In other words, registered workers who receive wages above 155,611.28 pesos per month could consider their wages to be above average.

That said, as the Adecco report notes, there are professionals who earn up to a million pesos per month for the position of responsibility and the hierarchy they occupy.

However, it should also be taken into account that the basic family basket in Argentina has a value of 128,214.11 pesos according to the National Institute of Statistics and Censuses, Indec. In other words, this average salary, which is the average of all registered employees in the country, barely covers the basic consumption basket of a family made up of a married couple and two dependent sons or daughters.

How much does an average Argentinian earn in 2022?

The RIPTE indicates that the average salary of an Argentinian in August of this year – this is the latest data available – is 155,611.28 pesos per month.

In contrast, INDEC offers data from the second quarter of 2022, which indicates that the average salary of a worker in Argentina was just over 40,000 pesos per month. In this calculation, the INDEC also includes those working in the informal sector.

According to the official entity, the average per capita income of the total population, which corresponds to 29,137,217 people, reached 41,626 pesos per month, while the median per capita income was 31,125 pesos.

It should also be borne in mind that Argentina is heading towards near 100% inflation per year, which leaves the salaries of many local workers below the levels necessary to maintain a good standard of living.
