NEW! February 2020: In order to make it easier for you to collaborate with your teams, we have improved the user experience of your Groups’ online space. A series of icons and labels now guide your activity and help you post messages to the group members, create and organise wiki pages, send events’ announcements, publish and organise the outputs and case statements resulting from your group’s activity and browse all the members of your Group. One new area also collects the Plenary sessions your group contributed to.

We hope that you’ll find this useful! Please do not hesitate to send your comments and suggestions to the RDA Secretariat here.

In 2007 the world’s population became more urban than rural according to the United Nations. Urban Quality of Life (QoL) is the general well-being of individual and societies living in cities. As there is a growing number of the world's population moving into cities there is increasing importance for the need for urban QoL indicators that can benchmark and enable comparative analysis in and between cities so that the social, environmental, economic and cultural dimensions can utlimately be improved.

This RDA interest group is being set up to contribute to this challenge by identifying a minimum set of interoperable open access datasets across the social,  environmental, economic and cultural domains that can be used to build comparable indicators of Urban Quality of Life (QoL) in a global setting.
