The following graph shows the total of the measured variables that percentage improved with respect to the previous year. This analysis allows us to know which administrations have been the most outstanding of each year.

From 2011 to 2018, only five of the fifteen most populous cities in Spain have enough data to be able to make the management comparison.

It is worth clarifying that the statistical reports are published several months after the end of the year: the latest data corresponds to 2018, the 2019 data will be published by the City Councils in October 2020.

It should be borne in mind that data must be available from at least fifty percent of the total observed variables to be part of the comparison.

List of surveyed data

Health

The goal of health is for the population to live as many years and as healthy as possible. For this reason, we chose to take into account these three variables that specifically measure this: the need for medical care, life expectancy and infant mortality.

Education

Currently education is essential to improve the quality of life, so the lack of it, either in people without any type of education or with only a complete primary level, is a central limitation in the development of people. On the other hand, higher studies were taken into account since with the advancement of information and technology, the specification of knowledge becomes essential.

Security

Security is about being able to live without fear, both of being killed and being hurt. Being able to travel with the peace of mind that nobody and nothing jeopardize physical integrity or material assets.

Economy

Variables that measure people's economy have been chosen. The rest of the data produced by the government in this section are important to understand the phenomenon at a global level but do not reflect personal situations. For example, the gross product of a city can grow at the same time that unemployment increases or poverty increases.

Environment

In this item, all the existing variables that measure the state of the environment in which we live were taken, in order to establish its evolution over time.

Infrastructure

Depending on the level of development of each city, the growth in the supply of certain public services such as paved blocks may be limited by the physical restriction to continue increasing their services. The main challenge in this area is undoubtedly the production of renewable energy, both for its collaboration with the environment and for its sustainability and economic future.
