World’s Best Cities to live in 2022

Amsterdam

Global Finance selects the world’s 10 best cities to live in based on eight metrics, including pandemic response.

Global Finance’s 2022 best cities to live in ranking is derived from a score that reflects eight distinct metrics: economic strength; research and development; cultural interaction; livability; environment; accessibility; Covid-19 deaths per thousand for the country; and annual population growth rate. These factors are all critical for quantifying the quality of life of people living in urban areas. All of the metrics were normalized in order to properly quantify them into a single overall score and provide a measure of comparison.

Where did we get the data?

The first six factors (economic strength, research and development, cultural interaction, livability, environment, and accessibility) come from the Global City Power index. This study provides a myriad of scores that quantify different aspects of city life including cultural, technological, environmental, and economic factors. Their report’s list of cities forms the basis for our decision of what cities to include in our list. The Covid-19 deaths per thousand comes from a combination of Johns Hopkins University and Statista for the remaining cities. The population growth is based on data from Macrotrends.

How has the ranking methodology changed since the 2020 ranking?

The impact of Covid-19 on the world’s population in 2022 is not the same as it was in 2020 when the pandemic first began; today, Covid-19 has become endemic in the human species, much like the influenza virus after the 1918 pandemic. To reflect this new reality, the relative weight of Covid-19 in the ranking has been reduced from three to two. GDP per capita has also been removed as a factor in the ranking since it is already incorporated into the economic score. The last change is the inclusion of population growth rate as a factor. As the pandemic caused a population growth decline across the world, it became clear that a growing population is a sign of healthy city life.
