Competitiveness: The Economist Intelligence Unit: Prague ranks 59th in 2015 Global Liveability Ranking


Prague ranked 59th in 2015 Global Liveability Ranking released by The Economist Intelligence Unit on 19 August. The indicator considers stability, health care, cultural, environmental, educational and infrastructural aspects of living in a city. Melbourne (Australia) ranked 1st, followed by Vienna (Austria), and Vancouver (Canada).

"The ranking, which provides scores for lifestyle challenges in 140 cities worldwide, shows that since 2010 average liveability across the world has fallen by 1%, led by a 2.2% fall in the score for stability and safety. While this may seem marginal, it highlights that 57 of the cities surveyed have seen declines in liveability over the last five years. Incidences of terrorist shootings in France and Tunisia have been compounded by civil unrest in the US and ongoing conflicts in Syria, Ukraine and Libya."
