Mercer has released their updated Quality of Living Survey for 2013. The survey analyzes 39 factors like political stability, cost of living, crime levels, pollution, and healthcare, which are important for future expats moving to the country.
Europe dominated the top five list with just one city being from North America.
“European cities enjoy a high overall quality of living compared to those in other regions. Healthcare, infrastructure, and recreational facilities are generally of a very high standard. Political stability and relatively low crime levels enable expatriates to feel safe and secure in most locations. The region has seen few changes in living standards over the last year,” said Slagin Parakatil, Senior Researcher at Mercer.
Here are the cities that were ranked the best in the world to live in
1. Vienna, Austria
2. Zurich, Switzerland
3. Auckland, New Zealand
4. Munich Germany
5. Vancouver, Canada
