    American economists have been following a return of peoples back to the city. Using these theories, this project has been focussed on the possibility of a similar phenomenon occurring in the United Kingdom. Manchester’s city centre population has been steadily growing for last decade and together with various high quality services make this area an ideal case study. The factors affecting the quality of life and the city’s perception will be examined to determine whether a population trend is occurring. This investigation will combine data collected from qualitative interviews and quantitative surveys. Healthcare, crime and environment were once important factors but location, recreation, employment and transport have now become the public’s top priorities when considering their quality of life. There is a large population focus due to the city’s facilitating for individual social groups thus further influencing the population trend. To summarise, there is a trend toward city living, however this trend is dependent on people’s individual needs.
