The City of Tampere took first place in the Vetovoima & Pitovoima (Reputation and Trust analytics) survey for the fourth consecutive time. Tampere also received an excellent rating for economic vitality.

The City of Tampere was able to defend its title as the most attractive city in Finland in the annual Reputation and Trust analytics conducted by T-Media. The survey was carried out for the fourth time, and Tampere has ranked first every year. In the survey, potential residents were asked to rate different areas on a scale of 1 to 5, and Tampere's average score was 3.80.

The attraction score of the cities consists of the average of six areas: economic vitality, community, environment, location, services and cost structure.

Jyväskylä and Kuopio tied for the second place in the survey. The average attraction score of the ten largest cities has, however, decreased slightly among potential residents. Only Espoo and Turku have increased their appeal. Tampere's attraction score dropped by 0.04 from the previous survey.

The survey interviewed two different groups, one consisting of the city's residents and the other of potential residents. A total of 2,255 current residents and 1,709 potential residents participated in the surveys. The target group comprised 15–65-year-old Finns.
