The Methodology
First, 47 city-specific measures were divided into the 12 broad but diverse categories (see charts). Many of these had to be ‘normalised’ for the number of sec a&b households. Next, each of these were re-normalised. Twelve intermediate indices were then derived by giving equal weights to each of the measures for each of the 12 categories. The final index was created for each city by taking the average of each of these indices. The 12-category indices and the one overall index were then rescaled so that they had a minimum value of 0 and maximum of 100. A higher value indicates better performance.
