Measuring each against prices found in New York City, GoBankingRates weighted and ranked countries based on these key affordability metrics: the local purchasing power index, the rent index, the groceries index, the restaurant price index and the consumer price index. GoBankingRates made a list of the 50 cheapest countries in the world to live in. Here are the African countries that made the list.
