  • Group Description

    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.
