Dubai has been included in a list of the top ten cities in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The list, which was compiled by Bayt.com, a leading job site in the Middle East, and research specialists YouGov Siraj, was based on economic factors, labour rights, environmental factors, everyday life factors and socio-cultural factors.
Dubai was ranked eighth in the overall top ten and third in the economic factors sector.
Amman, Marrakech and Kuwait City made up the overall top three.
In addition, Abu Dhabi and Dubai were ranked in the top two in the everyday life factors category.
"There is one area that is strong throughout the UAE and that is the country's health care facilities," commented Sundip Chahal, chief operating officer at YouGov Siraj.
"This is bound to play a big role in the cities' attractiveness levels as participating UAE respondents considered health care quality a very important factor in cities."
