  • Sorry Melbourne, You've Lost The Title Of World's Most Liveable City

"Not only has Vienna displaced Melbourne to become the most liveable city, but a total of 77 cities have seen a change in their liveability ratings". It is the first time a European metropolis has topped the annual chart compiled by the EIU.

The ranking, which was done by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) considered factors such as healthcare, education, infrastructure, among others.

"The great thing for Melbourne is that we're always looking at ways to improve", Capp said of her city's No. 2 spot.

At the other end of the table, Damascus retained last place, followed by the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, and Lagos in Nigeria.

Osaka, Calgary and Sydney completed the top five in the survey, which the EIU says tends to favor medium-sized cities in wealthy countries, often with relatively low population densities.

Karachi has been named among the least liveable cities in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) - the research and analysis division of the Economist Group.




"A return to relative stability, after several high-profile terrorist attacks and civil unrest incidents across much of western Europe and North America, has meant that only nine of these cities have registered a decline in this period".

Taipei edged past the South Korean capital Seoul, which dropped one spot to 59th from a year ago, according to the report released Monday. Japan's Osaka took third place.

The cities held the lowest ranks, 11 occupied the very bottom tier of liveability, where ratings fell below 50 per cent and most aspects of living were severely restricted.

According to the survey, major finance cities like London and New York City are victims of their own success. Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire; Hanoi, Vietnam; Belgrade, Serbia; and Tehran, Iran saw the largest improvements in liveability over the last five years - more than five percentage points.

Vienna was ideal in every category except culture and environment, where it scored 96.3 out of 100.

Other notables included Paris (19), Hong Kong (35), London (48) and NY (57).
