In 2017, Mercer has again ranked Vienna first in its international quality of living survey as the city with the highest quality of living worldwide.

The study compares 230 cities worldwide based on 39 criteria such as political, social, economic, and environmental factors. Two more European cities are among the top five: Zurich ranks 2nd and Munich 4th. Auckland (ranking 3rd) and Vancouver (ranking 5th) complete the list of the top five cities to live worldwide. Apparently, the worst place to live is Baghdad, positioned last in the list.
