The Economist Intelligence Unit's Global Survey revealed that the Australian city Melbourne has once again held on to its crown as the most liveable city in the world. This is the fifth year in a row the Victorian state capital has out-matched international rivals in livability. The survey looked at the livability criteria - healthcare, education, stability, culture, environment and infrastructure of 140 cities before giving Melbourne the top gong.

Each city was given a rating out of 100. Melbourne received a total score of 97.5, with its low crime-rate a key factor in retaining the title for five consecutive years. Austrian capital Vienna (97.4 points), Canada's Vancouver (97.3) and Toronto (97.2) followed closely. Another Australian city, Adelaide, also made to the list tying for the fifth spot with the Canadian city of Calgary.

Interestingly, Australian and Canadian cities took seven spots in the top 10 count.
