This question doesn't have a straight answer. And even if you try to measure it numerically—say using GDP, education level, even happiness—every indicator will only answer a small part of the question.
This course will introduce a range of commonly available socioeconomic indicators. Students will learn about their pros and cons, where these can be found, learn how to visualize indicators on maps and answer for themselves what constitutes a good place to live and how they would measure it.
