The GPCI, published by Mori Memorial Foundation’s Institute for Urban Strategies, evaluates major cities worldwide based on their “magnetism”, and their overall ability to attract people, businesses, and capital from around the world.
The GPCI evaluates cities based on six main categories: economy, research and development, cultural interaction, livability, environment and accessibility.
Each category is further divided into subcategories, and cities are evaluated based on a set of indicators that measure their performance in each category.
