Mercer’s 2009 worldwide quality of life study: 7th place for Munich Second best infrastructure in the world
by Finanzplatz München Initiative
Munich has the seventh best quality of life in the world. That’s the findings of the 2009 edition of Mercer’s rankings of 215 cities and what they have to offer expatriates. Munich finished just behind Düsseldorf (top-ranked city in Germany) in the rankings.
Mercer compiles its study using 39 social, political, business and environmental criteria. These are assessed by expatriate managers. The study also factors in such indicators as levels of personal security, quality of health care and education, transport links, and other public services.
