Vienna ranks as most liveable city in 2018 displacing Melbourne

Sorry Melbourne You’ve Lost The Title Of World’s Most Liveable City

Melbourne was first seven years in a row before being displaced by the Austrian capital.

Vienna got a score of 99.1, and Melbourne sits at an absolutely paltry 98.4. Two European cities, Helsinki, Finland and Hamburg, Germany fell out of the top-10 ranks from previous year.

The survey had been criticised past year for demoting Manchester eight places after the May 22nd attack. Other Canadian cities included in the top 10 are Vancouver, ranked in sixth place, and Toronto in seventh.

Osaka stands out especially, having climbed six positions, to third place, over the past six months, closing the gap with Melbourne.

The survey measures 140 cities across the globe on a range of factors, including political and social stability, crime, culture and environment, infrastructure, education and access to healthcare.

Hong Kong - whose ranking on Economist Intelligence Unit's (EIU) Global Liveability Index fell dramatically in 2015 due to heightened fears of unrest as part of the so-called Umbrella Revolution - was overtaken by Singapore in the rankings for the first time a year ago. But while Melbourne extended its lead in the culture and environment component, that was outweighed by Vienna's improved stability ranking.

What is more, Manchester also represents a regional trend over the past year, where there have been notable improvements in security in several western European cities which have shown resilience in their recovery from terrorist attacks.

Hong Kong's ranking fell dramatically in 2015 due to heightened fears of unrest as part of the so-called Umbrella Revolution, but has largely recovered now, the Economist Intelligence Unit wrote.

Pakistan's financial capital Karachi and Bangladesh's capital Dhaka are among the world's least liveable cities in the annual Global Liveability Index released by The Economist. Wore-torn Syria saw its capital of Damascus rank last on the list as the country's bloody civil war continues to drag on. The placement is slightly improved from last year's report, when Calgary came in fifth on the list.
