Liveability index: 3 Cities from Australia and 3 Cities From Canada in Top 10

  An annual survey was undertaken by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) of the most liveable cities in the world. Three Australian cities and three Canadian cities entered the podium. The liveability rating quantifies the challenges that might be presented to an individual’s lifestyle in any given location.   Different factors such as the stability of a city, health care, education, infrastructure, culture, and environment are taken into account to determine liveability. Of the 140 cities listed on the index, a rating of 100 is given each.  
  1. Stability: This category examines the prevalence of crime and the threat of terror, military conflict or civil unrest.
  2. Healthcare: This category focuses on the availability and quality of private and public healthcare, over-the-counter drugs and other general healthcare indicators.
  3. Culture and Environment: This category looks at temperature rating; climate; the level of corruption; social or religious restrictions; food and drink; and other social components.
  4. Education: This category covers the availability and quality of private and public education.
  5. Infrastructure: An assessment of the quality of roads, public transportation, availability of housing, and other elements.
  “[The liveability index] assesses which locations around the world provide the best or the worst living conditions. Assessing liveability has a broad range of uses, from benchmarking perceptions of development levels to assign a hardship allowance as part of expatriate relocation packages.”
