Vienna, the Austrian capital, was ranked the most liveable city in the

for seven years. Japan’s Osaka came in at third place.
The EIU’s annual ranking report summary says: “Every city is
assigned a rating of relative comfort for over 30 qualitative and
quantitative factors across five broad categories: stability,
healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.
“Each factor in a city is rated as acceptable, tolerable,
uncomfortable, undesirable or intolerable. For qualitative indicators,
a rating is awarded based on the judgment of in-house analysts and
in-city contributors.”
