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.

Transportation

You want to be free to go wherever you want, when you want. So in our LQI we use all the available data on public transport, taxi services, parking places and the distance to the city center or the next borough when calculating the livability of a place.

77 / Good

Daily Life

Life is all about the small things, so if you have everything you need nearby, then that is a great plus! When we calculate the Daily Life for the LQI, we take everything into account. Ranging from the distance to the nearest convenience stores and places of worship to Wi-Fi Hotspots and financial services.

52 / Average

Safety

You want to feel safe in your new home, so in the LQI you will be able to find all our data on crime levels and the nearest police and fire stations for that particular place.

40 / Average

Health

Health is important to us all. In the LQI we include everything related to your well-being: the proximity to health and medical facilities, but also pollution levels, the proximity you live to busy truck routes or factories, and even the number of noise complaints.

94 / Good

Sports and Leisure

When you have time off, you want to relax and have fun. So the closer to sport facilities, beauty salons and spas, running tracks and interesting places, the better.

91 / Good

Entertainment

Let’s face it, what would life be without restaurants, bars, cafes, museums and other entertainment venues? That’s why we include it in our LQI.

62 / Average

Demographics

We use data on demographics to calculate our Life Quality Index. We all want to feel welcome in our community and at home in our neighborhood. Things like average income, education levels, and poverty index are all taken into account to create the LQI.

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
