EIU Ranks Cities On Liveability



Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) publishes its annual liveability ranking in 140 cities worldwide taking into consideration the challenges to living standards, infrastructure, healthcare system and a low murder rate.  The  global instability in the last one year ranging from terrorist attacks in France and Tunisia to continuing conflicts across the Middle East, Ukraine and Libya had made indexing tough.

From 2010 average liveability across the world has reduced by 1% due to a 2.2% reduction in the score for stability and safety.  The five top most livable cities in 2015, are Melbourne, Vienna, Vancouver, Toronto and Adelaide/Calgary.  In that order Melbourne retains the top spot for the fifth consecutive year.  Predictably, Damascus remains the least livable city because of a bloody civil war involving Syria.

Europe and North America have plummeted in the rating because of events such as the Charlie Hebdo attacks in the heart of Paris and racial civil unrest in a number of U.S. cities.

Seven Chinese cities improved their ranking over the last 12 months because of a lower threat of riots and unrest.  China’s top-ranked city, Beijing, moved up five places to 69 in the global ranking.  Even the peaceful protest in Hong Kong reduced the rating by 3.2% as  some parts of the city were brought to a standstill for several months.

Top five most livable:

1. Melbourne, Australia
2. Vienna, Austria
3. Vancouver, British Columbia
4. Toronto
5. Adelaide, Australia
5. Calgary, Alberta

Least five livable:

136. Tripoli, Libya
137. Lagos, Nigeria
138. Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
139. Dhaka, Bangladesh
140. Damascus, Syria
