New York tops Oxford Economics’ inaugural index Global Cities Index

by Released

Oxford Economics has launched the Global Cities Index.

The index includes the 1,000 largest cities in the world in both advanced and developing countries across six continents, making it a truly comprehensive index. It is based on five distinct categories that include a total of 27 indicators. Leveraging Oxford Economics’ Global Cities Service and supplemented by other publicly available datasets, the index allows direct comparison of cities around the world on a range of metrics. The index contains five categories: economics, human capital, quality of life, environment and governance, which are aggregated to create a composite score for each city. By analyzing these five dimensions in depth, the Global Cities Index aims to understand each city's strengths and areas for improvement, empowering policymakers, investors, employers and residents to make informed decisions.
