About

  • Global Liveability Index Report 2022 was given by the European Intelligence Unit (EUI). The EUI, in its Global Liveability Index 2022, has ranked 173 cities across the world. The ranking is based on five factors - healthcare, stability, culture and environment, infrastructure, and education.

Key Facts

  • Among all the five factors, the EUI gives the most weightage to culture and environment, and stability. Both the factors account for 50% of the weightage in the ranking, with 25% each. Healthcare and infrastructure are given the weightage of 20% each, while education's share is 10% in the ranking.
