Where is the world's most polluted city? | Cities | The Guardian
UN organisation cannot compare or rank cities because many do not have the resources or political will to set up a monitoring system. Gary Fuller, an air pollution expert at Kings College, said continent-sized blank spots made it impossible to know where people were suffering the most.

“When we compare air pollution in cities, we only look at those with measurements,” he said. “This focuses our attention on big cities and the developed world. Initial attempts to measure air pollution from satellites have revealed more areas of the world with dense populations and high air pollution.”

Of the 1,622 cities covered in the WHO data, 510 are in two countries – the US and Canada. Just 16 are in Africa (half of these in relatively wealthy South Africa and Egypt). That’s 0.75% of the monitoring for 15% of the world’s population, an increasing number of whom live in high-risk cities. Latin America’s 604 million people are among the most heavily urbanised on earth. Their air is monitored in 109 cities. Across the Middle East, data is collected in just 24 cities.

The World's Most Influential Cities |
In order to quantify cities’ global influence, we looked at eight factors: the amount of foreign direct investment they have attracted; the concentration of corporate headquarters; how many particular business niches they dominate; air connectivity (ease of travel to other global cities); strength of producer services; financial services; technology and media power; and racial diversity. (Click here for a more detailed description of our methodology.) We found those factors particularly important in identifying rising stars that, someday, might challenge the current hegemony of our two top-ranked global cities, London and New York.

Forget London and Hong Kong—the most expensive cities for expats are in Africa - Quartz
Mercer, a human resources consultancy, compared the prices of 200 items from blue jeans to movie tickets to an apartment in a secure area that would appeal to an expat in different cities worldwide. It then calculated the cost of living using New York City (which got pricier and rose from 24th to 16th place since last year) as the baseline.
