ⓘ Most livable cities

The worlds most livable cities is an informal name given to any list of cities as they rank on an annual survey of living conditions. In addition to providing clean water, clean air, adequate food and shelter, a livable’ city must also generate a sense of community and offer hospitable settings for all, especially young people, to develop social skills, a sense of autonomy and identity. Regions with cities commonly ranked in the top 50 include Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Three examples of such surveys are Monocles "Most Liveable Cities Index", the Economist Intelligence Units "Global Liveability Ranking", and "Mercer Quality of Living Survey". Numbeo has the largest statistics and survey data based on cities and countries. Deutsche Banks Liveability Survey is another ranking of cities by quality of life.

Livability rankings may be used by employers assigning hardship allowances as part of job relocation.

                                     

1. The EIUs Global Liveability Ranking

The Economist Intelligence Units EIU publishes an annual Global Liveability Ranking, which ranks 140 cities for their urban quality of life based on assessments of their stability, healthcare, culture, environment, education and infrastructure.

Melbourne, Australia, had been ranked by the EIU as the worlds most livable city for seven years in a row, from 2011 to 2017. Between 2004 and 2010, Vancouver, Canada, was ranked the EIUs most livable city, with Melbourne sharing first place in the inaugural 2002 report. Vancouver has ranked third since 2015, while Vienna, Austria, ranked second until 2018 when it climbed to the top spot.

The Syrian capital, Damascus, was ranked the least livable city of the 140 assessed in 2016.

The EIU also publishes a Worldwide Cost of Living Survey that compares the cost of living in a range of global cities.

                                     

2. Mercers Quality of Living Ranking

American global human resources and related financial services consulting firm Mercer annually releases its Mercer Quality of Living Survey, comparing 221 cities based on 39 criteria. New York City is given a baseline score of 100 and other cities are rated in comparison. Important criteria are safety, education, hygiene, health care, culture, environment, recreation, political-economic stability, public transport and access to goods and services. The list is intended to help multinational companies decide where to open offices or plants, and how much to pay employees. For nine consecutive years 2009–2017, Mercer ranked Austrias capital Vienna first in its annual "Quality of Living" survey, a title the city still held in 2016.

                                     

3. Monocles Quality of Life Survey
