A comprehensive quality of life index provides a holistic measurement of these components, providing politicians, city planners, and citizens with useful insights.
The purchasing power index, safety index, health care index, cost of living index, property price to income ratio, traffic commute time, pollution index, and climate index are all factors considered by Numbeo, one of the world’s most comprehensive data and research platforms.
The Quality of Life Index is based on data collected by Numbeo through user questionnaires. The questionnaires collect users’ thoughts and experiences on a variety of quality-of-life issues.
The index is built using an empirical algorithm that assigns weights to each component based on their relative importance. The actual formula for Numbeo is subject to change and may vary. The data acquired for each component is combined to reflect the quality of life in a given location numerically.
To measure the overall quality of life, an empirical formula that accounts for all of the previously listed elements is utilized, with a higher score indicating a better quality of life.
Having said that, below is a list of African cities with the highest quality of life.
