The Robert Half Career City Index ranks and compares 25 U.S. cities across 25 indicators selected to measure different aspects of career development opportunities, quality and cost of living, and cultural environment. The indicators are organized into four distinct categories: Career Prospects, Quality of Life, Cost of Living and Cultural Diversity.
Guided by Robert Half, an Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) research team created the Index framework, selected the final set of indicators, gathered internal and external data, analyzed and scored the data, and built the Index. Between indicator selection, data validation and allocation of category weights, the research team aimed for objectivity and robustness, relying on existing city-level research and data to construct the Index.
