On the List of the World's Most Livable Cities for 5 Years!
The Economist recently released the 2015 Global Liveability Ranking of the world’s most livable cities as surveyed by the magazine’s Intelligence Unit. The criteria ranking included factors like culture & environment, stability, infrastructure, healthcare and educational resources with 140 cities in the world being surveyed .
The survey showed that the city of Calgary came in 5th spot - tied with Adelaide, Australia. Two other Canadian cities, Vancouver and Toronto, ranked 3rd and 4th, respectively. It is worth noting that Calgary has ranked 5th in the world’s most livable cities consistently from 2010 until the present.
Based on ratings from 0 to 100, the 140 cities were ranked according to the criteria, with 100 as the most ideal and 1 the least. Calgary attained ratings of 100 in healthcare, stability and education; while it scored 96.4 in infrastructure and 89.1 in culture.
Here’s the list of the world’s top 5 most livable cities, as ranked by the Economist Intelligence Unit:
1 Melbourne (97.5)
2 Vienna (97.4)
3 Vancouver (97.3)
4 Toronto (97.2)
5 Adelaide (96.6) / Calgary (96.6) (tied)
According to the Economist, the most livable places tended to be cities in more affluent countries with a relatively lower population density. That's why the near-megacities ranked lower. Cities with conflicts and unrests also dropped in their overall rankings because they had lower ratings in the areas of safety and stability.
Living in Calgary remains desirable and sought after, as the study showed because the city had perfect scores in healthcare, stability and education. Calgary has received many accolades in the past. In 2013, it was the Number 1 City in Canada to Raise a Family; Number 1 Cleanest City in the World; and Number 2 Most Prosperous City in the World.
