Methodology

To compile our index we have used a number of data sources. For each category, we sifted through the internet for the most recent and reputable data. Because these data sources were in a variety of different formats, min-max normalisation was used to standardise the data into a score between 0 and 10

This results in a score between 0 and 10 for each data point, and each city is ranked accordingly based on its overall average score.
