Vienna, Austria is the No. 1 most liveable city in the world
Vienna, Austria is the No. 1 most liveable city in the world. Accordingly, to the Global Liveability Index 2018, Cities in the U.S. aren’t as “liveable” as those in Australia, Japan and Canada. This is according to The Global Liveability Index 2018. Out of 140 cities around the world determined the most livable, not one American city made the top 20. Accordingly, to the report of the Economist Intelligence Unit of August 14, Vienna, Austria is the No. 1 most liveable city in the world.
This is the first time the city came the most livable on the list. Melbourne, Australia, had a record seven-year winning streak. However, Melbourne is now in second place
For this purpose, The EIU assessed which locations around the world provide the best or the worst living conditions. Consequently, every city is assigned a rating of relative comfort for over 30 qualitative and quantitative factors across five broad categories: stability (looking at things like crime, conflict and terrorism), healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.
Vienna and Melbourne scored maximum points of 100 in the healthcare, education and infrastructure categories, though Vienna edged forward in the stability category with 100 points (Melbourne ranked 95). In the culture and environment category, Vienna scored 96.3. The city’s overall score was 99.1. Melbourne scored 98.4.
Besides, Three of the largest Canadian cities Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary are ranked amongst the Top 10 most livable global cities in 2018. Toronto and Vancouver are undoubtedly amongst the most favoured destinations for immigrants to Canada. These 3 Canadian cities are the only cities in North America to make it to the list.
