Cities in Australia and Canada top the list of the world's most liveable places, according to a new survey, with Vancouver at number one. One reason is these towns are less dense, with lower crime rates and less pressure on infrastructure. We find out more from Jon Copestake, editor of the Liveability Survey for The Economist Intelligence Unit.
The bottom of the survey finds over-crowded cities in countries with political instability, which leads to more poverty and a lack of stable infrastructure. The full survey results are available at Economist.com.
