Kuwait City is one of 10 cities in the world with the most improved liveability scores over five years, according to a study conducted by Economist Intelligence Unit. The British study, published on Tuesday, ranked 140 cities throughout the world from the most liveable to the least liveable based on five categories — stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

Kuwait City was ranked 83rd with an overall rating of 72.1 and five-year score movement of 2.5. Besides Kuwait City, another GCC city made it to the list of 10 cities with the most improved liveability scores over five years — Dubai, United Arab Emirates that landed on the 75th spot with an overall rating of 74.7 and five-year score movement of 3.4.

On the other hand, Melbourne, Australia topped the list for the fifth year running; ahead of Vienna, Austria and Vancouver, Canada which came out top in 2011. However, conflict and terrorism in Australia have led to a fall in global urban living conditions more generally. The study found that mid-sized cities in wealthier countries with a relatively low population density scored highly, with Canada and Australia accounting for seven of the top 10 cities.

Although offering a “big city buzz”, the study concluded that global centers such as London, New York, Paris and Tokyo suffered overstretched infrastructure and higher crime rates as a result of their size. Tokyo was ranked at 15, Paris at 29, London at 53 and New York at 55. Although the top five cities remain unchanged, more than a third overall saw a change in their score, with the majority of those suffering a fall in standards “reflecting a deterioration in stability in many cities around the world.”
