The Methodology
This is a two-pronged study
incorporating the results from
secondary as well as primary
data. Primary data was collected by
way of an online survey. The secondary
component was primarily
used to create indices. This is done
in the following manner:
Overall, about 40 measures are
collected to generate a precise
quantification of conditions across
each city. Cities are then ranked
across these different measures. The
availability of data depends on
whether the same set of data is available
for all cities as well as the
frequency of updating datasets.
Generally, most of this data is relevant
for 2009.
In order to ensure comparability
across cities irrespective of size or
population of a city, the data is
normalised with the appropriate
variable (in some cases it may be
area, in others population). The normalisation
variable differs across different
data. Rating for each of the
categories mentioned above is
derived from an equal weighting formula.
A ranking exercise is then conducted
based on the ratings calculated
above.
In addition, an online survey is
conducted in top 30 cities. The parameters
are captured in the survey to
calculate the people’s perceptions
about their living conditions, earning
and business opportunities in their
respective cities.
