Those contemplating a move to another city or country should use this report as a roadmap to the most habitable urban centers. The Economist Intelligence Unit’s annual survey assesses 30 metrics covering health care, stability, education, culture and environment, and infrastructure. Cities that top the rankings tend to be mid-sized metropolises with low population densities in more prosperous countries. Terrorism and political conflict, which affect everything from infrastructure to recreation, are the culprits behind the bottom-tier survey scores. getAbstract recommends this eye-opening report to human resources and relocation experts, as well as executives considering a change of address.
