Published on

For the first time in history, the majority of the world population lives in cities. With the rapid growth of air travel, more and more people visit these cities for business, pleasure and to live.

So which are the most and least favourite cities where the world wants to visit, live, work and do business? Ipsos MORI interviewed more than 18,000 people in 24 countries to find out. The most striking finding of the Ipsos Top Cities Index is that a handful of "Superbrand" cities are particularly admired.

New York, London and Paris make up the Top 3 while Tehran, Tel Aviv, Karachi and Casablanca have a lot to do to attract tourism and business.

Ipsos MORI Top Cities: Global Survey of the World's Favourite Cities

  1. Summer 2013
  2. PART ONE: The World’s Favourite Cities
  3. Methodology • The questions were placed on Global @dvisor Wave 42 (G@42), an Ipsos survey conducted between 5-19 February 2013 • The survey is conducted monthly in 24 countries around the world via the Ipsos Online Panel system. The countries covered are: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Great Britain, Germany, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and the United States of America • The research is based on an international sample of 18,147 adults aged 18-64 in the US and Canada, and age 16-64 in all other countries. Sample size is approximately 1,000 per country, with the exception of Argentina, Belgium, Hungary, Indonesia, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden and Turkey, where each have a sample of approximately 500 • Weighting was then employed to balance demographics and ensure that the sample's composition reflects that of the adult population according to the most recent country Census data
  4. The Questions • Respondents were presented with a list of 48 world cities, and asked three questions: • “Based on what you have seen yourself, or heard from others, which three cities in the world do you think are best….” (a) to do business in (b) to live in (c) to visit • From these three questions, we have calculated an overall score: The Ipsos Cities Index. This simple measure is produced by adding up the percentages choosing the city at each question • For example, 12% of the global sample say Zurich is one of the best places to do business in. Some 21% single it out as one of the best places to live, with 8% putting it on their “best place to visit” list. This gives it an Ipsos Cities Index score of 41 points • The “Europe’s top city” findings are based on the ratings given by respondents in the 11 European countries covered in the survey
