Quality of life ranking of Spanish cities: A non-compensatory approach
Goerlich, F.J. y E. Reig
Fuente: Cities

Urban areas are hubs of economic activity, but also consumption centers where a high quality of life may attract human capital and increase prospects of economic growth and well-being. We rank 73 Spanish cities on the basis of 35 individual indicators covering three basic facets of quality of life: socio-economic performance, general livability conditions, and residents’ health status. We reject the conventional approach of compensability among different quality of life dimensions in favor of a Condorcet-inspired non-compensability approach. We obtain three partial composite indicators, one for each of the aforementioned dimensions, and a global indicator that synthesizes the three of them. Large cities display some advantages concerning the first two dimensions, but nevertheless substantial heterogeneity remains with regard to the relationship between quality of life and population size.
