The research points out the factors of greatest significance for the municipalities and regions to be perceived as a good place to live and stay.

The concept consists of the following main areas, with numerous sub-questions:

Location index

Safety & security index

Service index

Democracy index


The concept was developed by Sentio in collaboration with the University of Nordland.

We have established a database of questions in this concept based on a representative sample of Norwegian cities and Norway in general that our customers can compare themselves with.
