Life Quality Index (LQI)

You want to know what is the best place to live. With the Life Quality Index, or LQI, we make it a lot easier to decide which place is better to live.

The LQI is calculated by combining all our data on transportation, safety, health, affordability, entertainment, demographics, leisure and other essentials for everyday life. All our data comes from very reliable sources, like the MTA, NYPD, Google, Socrata, Foursquare and the U.S. Census to offer you the best information to find the right place to live.

I stayed for half a year in Manhattan. I thought it would be cool cause it has lots of bars, clubs, you can meet various type of people there and everything is close by. But actually when you want to study or just to sleep it''s just impossible. It''s so noisy that you wake up every morning even more tired than you were yesterday. Also, when walking alone in the evening Manhattan does not feel safe for my at all
