These are the world’s most livable cities in 2021

As the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, the metropolitan city of Auckland in New Zealand has been named the most livable city globally by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). That’s largely due to the country’s successful handling of Covid-19 which allowed schools, theaters, restaurants and other cultural attractions to remain open during the survey period from Feb. 22 to March 21, 2021, according to the EIU.

New Zealand implemented a strict nationwide lockdown for several weeks last year to slow the spread of the virus. It also shut its international borders to most travelers. Asia-Pacific cities dominated the top 10 rankings this year, even as the pandemic caused overall livability around the world to decline.

The top 10 most livable cities in the world, and their scores according to The Global Liveability Index 2021, are:

Auckland, New Zealand (96.0)
Osaka, Japan (94.2)
Adelaide, Australia (94.0)
Wellington, New Zealand (93.7)
Tokyo, Japan (93.7)
Perth, Australia (93.3)
Zurich, Switzerland (92.8)
Geneva, Switzerland (92.5)
Melbourne, Australia (92.5)
Brisbane, Australia (92.4)

The livability index ranks cities based on more than 30 qualitative and quantitative factors across five broad categories: stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.
