As a result of the higher growth rates in the Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) region, the gap in real wages between those countries and the US has narrowed from 2000 to 2010.

Measured by the relative purchasing power of the average salaries, the real wages in Belarus, Georgia and the Russian Federation in particular stand out with catching-up to the US level. Tajikistan, on the other hand, has not experienced significant changes over the decade.

But despite the recent narrowing in the gap, there are still big differences in real wages between the EECCA countries and the US.
