Vienna tops Mercer’s 19th Quality of Living ranking

20 March 2017

Each year, the international consulting firm Mercer carries out a study in order to assess the quality of life in 231 cities around the world. The 2017 survey gave Vienna top marks once again and made the Austrian federal capital the most livable city in the world for the eighth time in a row.

The survey compares the political, social and economic climate, medical care, education, and infrastructural conditions such as public transportation, power and water supply.

It also takes into consideration recreational offers such as restaurants, theaters, cinemas, sports facilities, the availability of all kinds of consumer goods from food to cars, as well as environmental conditions - from green space to air quality.
