A Multifaceted Analysis to Assess Global City Rankings

As per the Oxford Index in the report, “An uneven economic outlook across regions and lingering inflationary concerns could negatively impact the Economics score of many locations. Along similar lines, debt sustainability continues to be an issue for many developing countries following the Covid-19 pandemic and a period of heightened interest rates, which further threatens the economies of cities in these countries”.

The index considers below 5 categories along with its weight to rank the cities:

  • Economics (30%)
  • Human Capital (25%)
  • Quality of Life (25%)
  • Environment (10%)
  • Governance (10%)

The report said that “After we collected data for each indicator for all cities, we created a normalised score for each indicator by assigning the highest-scoring city a score of 100 for that indicator, the lowest-scoring city a score of 0, and distributing the rest of the cities’ scores across that range. We combined the scores for each indicator within a category to create a total score for that category for each city. We then normalised the total score for each category, and calculated the city’s final overall score by taking a weighted average of each category’s normalised score”.
