BBC newsbeat - places to live ranked

Recommended Posts

Then the unemployment figures that they used to collate this thing go way down. I've been busy on the ONS site

 

My preferred choice according to this site is Sheffield, and thats a shithole these days.

Islington? No thanks! Results clearly don't take account of the fact that for some - quite a few even - the idea of living in the middle of a big city is hell. You can measure various things but the importance placed on them is entirely subjective, so such a ranking says is it's the best place according to some critieria of things the people who carried out the ranking presumably value.

Good to see that only rent and not house prices are considered as a parameter here. Being 26 and being able to buy a home is obviously just so 20th century.

That article is straight up nonsense. It basically just picks out the urban areas except that is heavily skewed by how the areas are divided up. For example some areas are effectively the bounds of a city and score highly. Other significant towns and cities are absorbed into wider rural areas and therefore don't score highly. What an accomplishment in stupidity.
