Melbourne | World's Most Liveable City 2016

Melbourne has been named the world's most liveable city for the 6th year in a row (2016) achieving a near perfect score on the Economist Intelligence Unit's (EIU) liveability survey of 140 cities.

The survey rated cities out of 100 in the areas of health care, education, stability, culture and environment and infrastructure.

Melbourne scored 97.5 out of 100, one basis point more than Austria's Vienna.

Canada's Vancouver and Toronto ranked third and fourth respectively.

Adelaide was rated equal fifth most liveable city, tied with Calgary, Canada.

Perth ranked seventh, while Sydney — ranked seventh last year — dropped out of the top 10 due to a "heightened perceived threat of terrorism," according to the report's summary.

Melbourne Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the title was something all Melburnians should be proud of.

"Once again, we excelled in the five criteria: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure," he said.

"We do not take this title for granted and are constantly planning and implementing policies that will continue to improve our quality of life."

Mr Doyle said the City of Melbourne would continue to work with all levels of government to ensure Melbourne remained a great place to live.

Syria's capital Damascus, with a ranking of 30.2, was ranked the world's least liveable city, followed by Libya's Tripoli and Nigeria's Lagos.

Iran's capital Tehran is the most improved city over five years, followed by Dubai and Harare in Zimbabwe.
