THE FACILITY AND ITS PURPOSE
The Global City Indicators Facility provides an established set of city indicators with a globally standardized methodology that allows for global comparability of city performance and knowledge sharing. This website serves all cities that become members to measure and report on a core set of indicators through this web-based relational database.
The indicators are structured around 20 “themes” that measure a range of city services and quality of life factors.
