2 days ago 0 0 173

Melbourne is the only country to win World’s Most Liveable City for 7 consecutive years.

This is the first time in the survey’s 15-year history that a city has held top spot in The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index for seven consecutive years.

The Economist’s report scores each city out of 100 for stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.
