The 2014 edition of the Economist Intelligence Unit’s survey on livability offers a succinct yet granular assessment of living conditions in 140 of the world’s cities. The survey’s ratings derive from an elaborate construct of qualitative and quantitative metrics that gauge what makes a city livable: its “stability, health care, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.” getAbstract commends this cogent reference to executives considering relocation, human resources professionals, business travelers and economic development specialists.
