According to data from The Economist‘s Intelligence Unit, Vienna, Austria is the world’s most liveable city in 2018, followed by Melbourne, Australia, and Osaka, Japan. The news comes as part of the publisher’s annual Global Liveability Index which ranks the living conditions of cities internationally.

140 cities were ranked on factors such as safety, healthcare, educational resources, and infrastructure. The city’s culture, environment, crime rates and levels of corruption were also taken into account.

This year’s shortlist marks the first time in eight years Melbourne did not secure the top spot. Moreover, Japan managed to rank two cities in the top 10. Stateside, not a single U.S. city managed to place in the top 20 cut, however, Honolulu came close in 23rd place followed by Pittsburgh at 32.
