Vienna is No. 1, Auckland falls to 34th; Here is the list of the top 10

Austria’s capital, Vienna, reclaimed its spot as the world’s most livable city in 2022, according to an annual report published by The Economist on June 22. The Economist Intelligence Unit surveyed 173 cities around the world for its Global Livability Index. Last year, Auckland, New Zealand’s most populous city, topped the list. However, this year the city dropped out of the top 10 at 34th place due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. The top 10 cities this year were among those with the fewest restrictions. The Global Liveability Index surveyed and rated cities in the categories of stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.
