Measuring Livability of World Cities

The Economist came out with its ranking of top world cities in terms of livability. Its research arm, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) used 30 indicators to measure livability. Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Osaka, Paris, Sydney, Stockholm, Berlin, Toronto, Munich and Tokyo make up the list of top ten cities.

They have added seven new indicators that relate to “spatial” qualities such as the amount of green space and urban sprawl. “The new indicators themselves are clever but perhaps overly laden with values that do not lend themselves to quantifiable comparisons.”
