Cities of Opportunity


PricewaterhouseCoopers’ Cities of Opportunity 2011 study compares 26 cities on over 10 indicators with 66 different variables - everything from ease of starting a business to end of life care to number of libraries with public access. PWC doesn't think of this study as a competition of cities. The "analysis of the trajectory of 26 cities, all capitals of finance, commerce and culture—and through their performance, seeks to open a window on what makes cities function best."
