Regardless of being a mother or father, student or retiree. We all want to live in the best possible circumstances. We often spend a lot of time looking for the ideal place to live or the best neighborhood and use up a lot of energy.
GEOfy tells you straight away whether an area in Germany suits you or not. To give you an idea how GEOfy works we have preselected a few criteria for you. These preselected criteria tries to reflect the living conditions of families, students and senior citizens as accurately as possible.
We present you with a total index value between 0 and 100 for all regions. In this way, you can quickly and intuitively classify whether a certain region suits you and your focus or not. An index value of 100 means that the area fits perfectly, a value of 0 means the opposite. If you want, you can of look at the criteria individually. So you don't have to rely on our index alone.
For each indicator, a region receives a score between 0 and 100. The sum of the individual scores of the indicators used for a analysis is the total score of a region. The index value displayed for the regions is then calculated by dividing the total score of the region by the number of indicators used.
With a total score of 1,450 and a number of indicators of 19, this results in a (rounded) index value of 76:
1.450 / 19 = 76,32
Last but not least, we put the individual indicators in perspective. In many places on our website, we do not merely show the indicator values for the region, but also the corresponding average value of each indicator. This way, you can easily assess how good a certain value really is.
For example, it looks like this:
The second value (right after "vs.") shows the average value.
We are only human, too. If you think that we made a mistake with one of our indicators or if you are missing an important indicator, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will take care of your request as soon as possible.
The following sections list the criteria and explain why we think they are important.
As parents, we above all want the best for our children. Therefore, the focus of the criteria for families is primarily on the child's best interests. So childcare, school, leisure activities and infrastructure that makes life easier and more pleasant for families are important. These include, for example, supermarkets or restaurants, but also public swimming. Another important aspect is family safety, which is why we also evaluate statistics on the subject of public safety.
As a student, it is important to us to be part of a city's life. During the course of study, leisure time is usually much more important than, for example, for families. Therefore, when we put together the criteria for students, we attached great importance to leisure activities but also to a good infrastructure. You don't want to spend the little time you have besides studying and a possibly necessary part-time job with long journeys to the nearest supermarket. And a suitable university nearby is certainly not harmful either.
Once we retire, our lives change suddenly and often in dramatic ways. We usually have a lot more free time, our health becomes more important to us and some things become increasingly difficult over time. In some cases, going to the nearest supermarket or visiting the doctor is a real challenge. That is why we paid attention to leisure activities, but also to infrastructure and health care, in the criteria for senior citizens.
