Financial metrics

Tax rates: The research team evaluates national and local taxes, social security payments, and family allowances.

Costs (split into Housing + Cost-of-Living): A basket of more than 350 goods and services, including amongst others the prices for “Housing, Utilities, Transportation, Food, Drink, Recreation, Clothing, Domestic Help, Household Supplies, Communications, Home Furnishings, Personal Care, and Medical” represents the cost of living in each surveyed city.

Lifestyle metrics

Living conditions / Quality of Living / Social Benefits: The research team evaluates each city for more than 60 elements. Those are again split into 11 categories like “Physical Threat and Safety (e.g., violence, crime, medical), Discomfort (e.g., climate, pollution, isolation), Inconvenience (e.g., availability of housing, recreation, goods and services, education facilities).”

All data, which is collected by AIRINC’s own in-house research unit, is constantly updated in order to evaluate international mobility.
