10 METHODOLOGY


To create a shortlist for fDi’s Americas Cit- ies of the Future 2021/22, the fDi Intelli- gence division of the Financial Times col- lecteddata using the specialistonline tools fDi Markets and fDi Benchmark. In total, 210 locations were analysed for the study. Data was then collected for these 210 loca- tions under five categories: Economic Potential, Business Friendliness, Human Capital and Lifestyle, Cost Effectiveness and Connectivity. Locations scored up to a maximumof 10 points for each datapoint, whichwereweighted byimportance to the FDI decision-making process in order to compile both the subcategory rankings as well as the overall ‘Americas Cities of the Future 2021/22’ ranking. In addition, surveys were collected


under a sixthcategory,FDI Strategy. This is the only qualitative category. It operates as a stand-alone ranking and also feeds into the overall results. For this category, there were 51 submissions – locations submitted details about their strategy for promoting FDI, which was then scored by fDi’s judg- ing panel. Cities in the study were categorised


according to population. Those locations with immediate city populations below 100,000 were categorised as ‘Micro’ loca- tions, of which there were 40. ‘Small’ loca- tions (40 locations) had immediate city populations between100,000and350,000. ‘Mid-sized’ locations (of which there were 33 locations) had an immediate city popu- lation over 200,000 and a wider Larger Urban Zone (LUZ) over 750,000, or an immediate city population over 350,000. There were 43 ‘Large’ locations, with immediate city populations over 500,000 andanLUZpopulation over one million or an LUZ over two million. ‘Major’ locations (54) had an immediate city population over 750,000 and an LUZ over two million, or an LUZ over four million people. ■
