Manila is one of the best cities in the world for young people to live, work and play.
In its 2015 Youthful Cities Index report, the Toronto-based research and survey group Decode said Manila ranked 46th city among the world’s 55 most youthful cities.
New York topped this year’s list, followed by London and Berlin. San Francisco was also included among the Top 5 countries, with just a few points above Paris.
The Philippines ranked lower than its neighbors in the South-East Asian Region. Hong Kong ranked 19th, Singapore 39th, Jakarta 41st and Bangkok 45th.
The survey was based on the data collected from the internet and face-to-face intercepts in over 200 cities around the world. It was conducted in 22 different languages with more than 10,000 participants aged between 15 to 29 years old.
The participants were asked to assess 20 urban attributes including employment, digital access and civic engagement and how these things affect their lives.
