Everyone has a city that they think is the best in the world, but there can only truly be one that is the best, right? Well, it seems we may know what it is.
Vienna, Austria has been deemed the most liveable city in the world by the Economist Intelligence Unit. The group produced a report of the top 140 most liveable cities in the world, and chose Vienna as number one. It's the first time Vienna has received the honor, and they overtook Melbourne, Australia, which had won the honor the previous seven years.
The group making the rankings looked at a number of different factors, but they can broadly be sorted into five categories. One is stability, meaning basically crime and safety of the city. Another is healthcare. Culture and environment is another. Education is the fourth, and the final category is infrastructure.
Australia actually had three cities in the top 10, as Sydney and Adelaide joined Melbourne on the list. Canada also had three cities in the top 10 with Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver. Japan added two to the top 10 with Osaka and Tokyo. Copenhagen, Denmark marked the final city in the top 10.
You may notice that the United States of America had exactly zero cities in the top 10, but it's actually even worse than that. There were 0 American cities in the top 20! The highest rated American city was Honolulu, Hawaii, coming in at 23rd on the list.
It should be noted that the highest ranked U.S. city is also the one that is literally the furthest possible from the American mainland.
So it sounds like all those people who threatened to move to Canada if Trump got elected are actually enjoying the good life.
