How the Portugal City Brand Ranking is developed

The survey, conducted by Bloom Consulting for 8 years, measures the socioeconomic performance of Portuguese municipalities in the dimensions of Business (Investment), Visiting (Tourism) and Living (Talent). To this end, statistical data (economic, tourism and social) from more than 5 thousand sources of information, including INE and Pordata, were analyzed and contrasted.

Along with collecting this data, the ranking was also based on the measurement of all online searches for these municipalities conducted on major search engines around the world. In this sense, millions of word combinations in multiple languages were used by potential tourists, investors, workers, students or citizens in general about countries, regions, counties and cities around the world.

Finally, it was also considered the communication and promotion actions carried out by each municipality, through its website and other social networks. The ranking developers argue that the first point of inspiration for traveling, investing, or looking for a new place to work or study is online research.

The study’s mission is to understand the reality of the Portuguese territorial brands and gauge the impact that each one has, each year, on the reality of attracting talent to the country.
