What Is the Average Salary in Pakistan?

Pakistan is one of the poorest countries in the world as of 2015, and as such has a very low average wage. Data taken from a Pakistani government survey in the 2011 to 2012 period indicates that the average per capita income is $1,256.80 per year.

Workers in Pakistan earn very little per year when compared to their counterparts in the developed world, and even less than in developing countries like China. For many, the wages they earn from work within the country do not cover basic expenses, and households are forced to rely on remittances sent home from family members working abroad.
