Karachi has been once again ranked among the 10 least liveable cities in the world in the latest annual survey released by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).

Every year, the EIU gives 140 cities scores out of 100 on a range of factors such as living standards, crime, transport infrastructure, education, healthcare, political and economic stability. In this year’s list, the port city has been named as the fifth least liveable city in the world and is on 136th in the list. Karachi's ranking has improved by one spot in comparison to its last year's ranking.

Karachi's overall rating out of 100 was 40.9, its stability rating was 20, healthcare 45.8, culture and environment 38.7, education 66.7 and infrastructure 51.8. The EIU has stated these ratings to be ideal. Meanwhile, Vienna took the number 1 spot in the list followed by Melbourne and Sydney.
