For those of you that are regular readers of this blog, you must have realized by now that I love stats, numbers and rankings like most of you do, so here is another ranking for the ages. The factors taken into account when determining livability include: cleanliness, availability of schools within one kilometer radius of a neighborhood, number of health clinics, access to market and grocery shops, entertainment and social living, number of football teams and their overall rank. We also incorporated the rate of construction and price of land into the ranking. Property rents and social amenities were also a minor factors. Finally, the number of famous residents was taken into account.
The number of possible point a neighborhood can garner is 100.
The most livable Bulla's are:
1. Lower Province, 68
2. Sunnah 57
3. Ngamia Road 55
4. South C 53
5. Iskadag + Suuqa Xolaha 47
6. Town (downtown) 35
7. Garissa Ndogo 31
8. Bulla Sheikh 28
9. Upper Province + Bulla Iftin 25
10.Bulla Adaan including Tetu 18
Places like Province rank highly in many of the measurable indices except for health care and social interaction. A lot of the residents are uptight snobs holed up in gated houses rarely running into their neighbors. Bulla Sheikh fails in cleanliness while Ngamia got undone by a relatively high crime rate.
While the borders between Bulla's can be relatively vague, most people know where the unofficial demarcation lines are.
Happy new year all. Thank you for giving this blog almost 10000 hits in 3 months.
