Among the top 10 liveable cities listed, Vienna, Australia, Canada and Japan were mentioned - let us break it down for you! But before we dive into this, one can't help but wonder: how are cities across the globe measured to be on the list?
The notion of liveability assesses which cities offer the best living conditions worldwide.
The report first quantifies a person's difficulties in any specific setting to compare the findings across locales.
Hence, the livability of each city considered is determined through 30 factors in 5 categories — economic stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.
