Every year for ten years now, global consulting firm Mercer has published a list of the top cities to live in. The 2019 list is out, and no US city made the top ten. Or top twenty. Or top 30. Here are the factors they considered in ranking the list.
Their annual ranking on the quality of life of cities worldwide is determined by 10 factors which include a city’s recreational opportunities, housing, economic environment, consumer goods availability, public services and transport, natural environment, social-cultural environment, education, health care, and a city and country’s political and social environment.
