As in this type of rankings, there is more than one list that aims to publicize the cities that are the best in Mexico. Some of these lists consider aspects such as business opportunities, tourist level, access to quality of life, level of security, etc., so that sometimes only business or political promotion aspects are considered to determine an evaluation, but they leave aside the most interesting thing: the perception of the people who live in the cities.

The best cities to live in Mexico 

As expressed in the introduction to the article, there is more than one list that aims to publicize the best cities to live in Mexico, but from Rankia we are going to take the latest report issued by the Institute for Economy and Peace (IPC), who is an independent and non-profit entity dedicated to measuring the levels of peace in the country.

 According to what is reflected in the image taken from the Mexico 2020 Peace Index Study, Yucatán is once again ranked No. 1, as the most peaceful state in Mexico due to its low crime rate. 


The study gave Yucatán an average score of 1,272, when measuring the five criteria considered by the IPM, which are: the rates of homicides, violent crimes, crimes with weapons and organized crime, as well as incarceration, where the one represents the most peaceful rating and five represents the least peaceful rating.
 In addition, from the study issued by the Institute for the Economy and Peace (IPC), we also take into account the data presented by the Strategic Communication Office in its Study of More Livable Cities. From this study we take a series of factors to determine the best cities in Mexico. 
 Among the factors or indices that we consider are: 

  • Quality of life
  • Social cohesion
  • The satisfaction index with municipal services 
  • The mayors evaluation index. 
     

 Next we will know the characteristics of each one of the indices:

Top 1: Cities with the best quality of life

Top 2: Social cohesion

Top 3: Index of satisfaction with municipal services

The index of satisfaction with municipal services (ISACS) measures the satisfaction of citizens with respect to the public services they have in their localities. For this index, several municipal services were evaluated on a scale of 5 to 10 points, where 5 means that the person disapproves of the actions of their municipal government and considers that they did an excellent job. 
 This indicator measures satisfaction in terms of:

  • Timely garbage collection.
  • Maintenance of public lighting.
  • Paving quality and pothole fixes.
  • Maintenance of gardens and public parks.
  • Drainage operation and attention to water leaks.
  • Regulation of informal trade and street vendors.
  • Improvements in health centers and service in clinics.
