World's most liveable cities ranked

Winter Olympics host, Vancouver, ranked world's most liveable city

Quote:
Vancouver (Canada) continues to top the Economist Intelligence Unit's global liveability survey. A score of 98% bodes well for visitors during the Winter Olympics this year. Conversely, as security concerns abound in Sub-Saharan Africa following the Africa Cup of Nations, Football World Cup host Johannesburg (South Africa) comes in joint 92nd place with a score of 69.1%. Nonetheless, this is still the highest score in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Jon Copestake, editor of the report, comments: "Vancouver scores well across all categories in the survey and the forthcoming Winter Games contribute to a strong score in the cultural and sporting events category. Johannesburg has had well-documented crime problems, but performs better in other categories, with the highest overall liveability rating in Sub-Saharan Africa."

Elsewhere, European and North American cities continue to dominate the top tier of the ranking, alongside cities in Australia and New Zealand. Other regions fair less well, especially Sub-Saharan Africa, with security concerns under renewed scrutiny following attacks on the Togo national football team in the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola. The ongoing social and economic crisis in Zimbabwe ensures that Harare is still the worst of the 140 cities surveyed.

As far as I am concerned, no city is livable. Give me rural country side any day.

Australia, Queensland was bumped off the Top 10 list because of the influx from all the other Australian states plus several arrivals from a few of the bottom 10 cities.

Just stating facts.
