The Global Liveability Survey is a measure of urban quality of life assessing stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.[1] It is published annually by the Economist Intelligence Unit.

Vancouver, Canada had been ranked first since 2002, however has ranked third after Melbourne, Australia and Vienna, Austria since 2011.[1] The EIU has stated that a highway closure on Vancouver Island (separated from Vancouver by the Strait of Georgia and not connected by bridge) resulted in the "small adjustment" to Vancouver's rating.[2]

The Global Liveability Survey ranks 140 cities worldwide,[3] and lists Damascus as the least livable city in the world in the latest index (August 2013).[3]
