About Us

We analyze how cities around the world compare in terms of infrastructure, mobility, governance, affordability, leisure, opportunity, and many other areas. Our hyperlocalized practice allows us to help cities be responsive to the needs of targeted demographics and industries in order to support a larger selection of lifestyles better.

The institute’s research spans across a range of disciplines and expertise. We believe that the best decisions are supported by comprehensive data guided by credible methodologies and scrutinized by an experienced, international team and industry experts.
