London has left behind Paris and New York to claim the title of best city in the world for quality of life, according to a new study.
The study, published last week by consultancy firm PwC was conducted in 2015 after surveying a group of 5,200 people from 16 countries, consisting of an equal number of business decision makers, informed elites, and other general population adults over 18 years of age. The purpose of the study was to find out what and how they think about 30 global cities, the same group researched in PwC’s Cities of Opportunity as well..
According to the report, London registers as a dynamic city, scoring well across the board in 29 of 36 image attributes. Its top attributes include having a well-developed infrastructure, being connected to the rest of the world, and having a well-developed legal framework.
New York, which came third, was described as the ‘leader’ for its economic influence and ability to provide easy access to capital.
The study also created another list based on quantifiable information.
London was on the top of this list too.
Here’s a complete list of the world’s 30 best perceived cities:
- New York
- Los Angeles
