World’s Most Liveable Cities, 2019.

Melbourne Waterfront

Melbourne comes in at number 2!

For the second year running, Vienna has remained the most liveable city in the world for 2019 out of 140 cities surveyed by The Economist Intelligence Unit.

Stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure are all measured to draw the conclusion.

With an overall rating of 99.1 out of 100, Vienna, the Austrian capital, has this year scored highly in similar surveys, and has consistently contended strongly for the past decade.

Coming in second was Melbourne, for the second year in a row. Before being beaten by Vienna last year, Melbourne topped the Global Liveability Index for seven years on the trop.

This year, it scored 98.4 falling just shy of the top spot, but still scored full marks in healthcare, education and infrastructure.
