Editor's Notes

  • The Economist Intelligence Unit’s latest ranking of the World’s most Livable Cities has been unveiled, with Melbourne topping the list, ahead of Vienna and Vancouver. The South African cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria were ranked 92nd and 96th respectively, with Johannesburg interestingly enough, tied with Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. However, my recent visit to Brazil, does make me question the individual factors which have not placed Rio de Janeiro ahead of its Brazilian counterpart. With more information and data unavailable, I am a bit skeptical.Cape Town has not been included the sample of cities which were surveyed, but it is probable that it would remain quite close to Johannesburg and Pretoria, and one might even suggest that it could be ahead of both of those cities.The major theme however is the dominance of the Australian cities. Melbourne (1st), Adelaide (5th), Sydney (7th), Perth (9th) and Brisbane (20th) are all ranked within the top 20 cities, which suggests that Australia (along with Auckland at 10th) may be holding the secret ingredients to building more livable cities, and that an immediate study tour should be embarked upon by cities. Or not?London, the successful host of the 2012 Olympic Games, drops in the rankings from 53rd to 55th, largely as a result of the London Riots, and civil unrest, while past Olympic host cities Sydney (7th), Barcelona (33rd), Athens (66th) , Beijing (72nd) finding themselves on either side of the British capital.Another interesting observation is the ranking of Copenhagen, 22nd on the list, while the Monocle Top 25 Quality of Life survey ranked the city 3rd.The ranking scores 140 cities from 0-100 on 30 factors spread across five areas: stability, health care, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure. These numbers are then weighted and combined to produce an overall figure. The cities at the top of the table are separated by tiny differences, with just 0.3 percentage points between first and fourth. (Source: The Economist blog)
