About us

Best Cities™ is a research project which has as its goal the creation of a central database of all accessible statistics in Europe: on the sub-city, city, sub-regional, regional and national levels in order to facilitate cross-border comparisons of quality of life aspects between the different EU nations.

Now in its fifth year, this project has already gathered thousands of statistics into its existing database and is expanding the scope of the database on a daily basis. The database already includes some 600 different criteria organized into 19 different categories.

These are:

  • ECONOMIC
  • COST OF LIVING
  • STATUS OF CHILDREN
  • PUBLIC HEALTH
  • HUMAN RESOURCE CAPITAL
  • CRIME STATISTICS
  • DEMOGRAPHICS
  • HOUSING
  • EMPLOYMENT
  • DEMOCRATIC PROCESS
  • MUNICIPAL INCOME
  • BUREAUCRACY
  • WEATHER /ENVIRONMENTAL
  • ENERGY
  • TRANSPORTATION
  • INFRASTRUCTURE / INNOVATION
  • LEISURE ACTIVITIES
  • SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES
  • IMAGE


  • The statistics are gathered at the lowest possible level in order to assure the accuracy of the data. Where international agencies gather and harmonize statistics, these statistics are also included into the database and are earmarked as harmonized data. All sources of the statistics are scientifically documented in order to provide a means through which to insure their accuracy.

    Thus Best Cities™ is able to offer a one-stop address for all statistical comparative efforts within Europe.
