Canada’s Vancouver has scooped first-place spot in the top 50 "most live-able" cities, according to worldwide analysis by the Economist Intelligence Unit.


Vienna in Austria is ranked second, closely followed by Melbourne, Australia. The top 20 includes five Australian cities, three Canadian cities and two German cities.

Manchester is the only UK city to make the top 50, coming in at 46th place. London failed to make the Top 50 with a ranking of 51st place.

The poorest performing locations were Africa and Asia “where civil instability and poor infrastructure present significant challenges,” the survey found. Harare in Zimbabwe was ranked 140th out of 140 having met just 37.5% of the criteria set by the surveyors.
