Monocle’s Most Livable Cities Index 2012
The world’s biggest and most important cities aren’t often the best places in which to live. High levels of crime, traffic congestion and long commutes can worsen the quality of life. So which cities are the best to live in?
We’ve put together a list of the world’s 15 best cities, according to human resources consulting firm Mercer’s 2012 quality-of-life survey. The annual report looks at living conditions in 221 cities worldwide and ranks them against New York as a base city in 10 categories such as socio-cultural environment, economy, politics, education and the health sector.
The 2011 survey also identified cities with the highest personal-safety rankings based on crime levels, law enforcement, international relations and stability.
Cities in some of the world’s biggest economies including the U.S., China and Britain, missed the cut.
Up next, the list:
