Sheffield revealed to be a nice place to live, by report

Have your say

Sheffield residents have some of the highest quality of living in the country - according to an annual report from MoneySupermarket, which assessed the UK’s 12 largest cities.

Sheffield came fifth, below Leeds, Cardiff, Belfast and Edinburgh. The report considers a number of economic indicators, including house price affordability, affordability of rental costs, salaries, disposable income, cost of living, unemployment rates and life satisfaction.

Kevin Pratt, Consumer Finance Expert at MoneySuperMarket, said: “Overall, the UK’s largest cities perform well in the Quality of Living index. While in some cases, salaries have fallen slightly and the cost of living has risen, hitting some cities hard, life satisfaction scores are generally higher across the board compared to last year.”
