The Best Cities to Live in Mexico
The best cities to live in Mexico vary according to the poll. The site of CNN Expansión published a classification of the world’s best cities, among which there is Monterrey in place 94 and Mexico City in place 128 from the 215 cities with best life quality worldwide.

Newspaper El Universal published a poll resulting in that the best sites to live in Mexico are the cities of Queretaro, Monterrey, Chihuahua, Saltillo and Mexico City. The reasons they are considered the best cities for living are their geographic location, work offer, education and health services, and transportation and communication systems. The cities of Mexicali, Toluca and Tijuana are also included in the list of best cities to live in, especially for their low vehicle traffic.

In order to obtain these results, 38 variables were taken into consideration, including the gross total production per person, industrial development, family income, working population and crime levels. Other factors considered to determine the best cities were those that promote economic and social development of its citizens and where most of the population has growth opportunities; also financial capacity, housing services, health services and telecommunication infrastructure.

The high degree of subjectivity in individual appreciations also has a great influence in this classification, especially in the factors referring to the government’s performance, the effectiveness of the education system and the quickness with which patients are treated in public hospitals.

The results of this study show that the greatest commercial, industrial and financial development is found in the cities of Saltillo, Monclova, Monterrey, Queretaro and San Luis Potosi. This is based on data related to the average income, the index of industry’s specialization and the individual financial activity.

The cities with the best education, health, environmental and water distribution services are Toluca, Monterrey, Culiacan, Queretaro and San Luis Potosi.

Consulta Mitofsky did a national poll in 2007 to determine Mexico’s best cities. The poll consisted in including 53 cities with more than 80 thousand inhabitants. The result was that Guadalajara is the most desired city to live in, followed by Aguascalientes which is very well qualified as one of the best cities to rest, work and study; then Monterrey, Guanajuato, Veracruz, Puebla, Mexico City and Queretaro.
