The world's most liveable cities in 2018

The world's most liveable cities in 2018
Melbourne has finally lost the title of world's most liveable city after a seven-year reign.
 
The Australian city came in second place on the Economist Intelligence Unit's 2018 ranking of the world's most liveable cities, missing out on the top spot by just 0.7%.
 
It was pipped to the post by Vienna, which received an overall score of 99.1% on the annual list, which assesses stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure in 140 different cities.
 
EIU attributes Austria's capital's rise to the top to increased security scores due to a return to relative stability across much of Europe after high-profile terrorist attacks in recent years.
 
Melbourne's unseating isn't the only noticeable shift after years of very little change among the highest ranks.
