In a recent survey performed by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) — the research and analysis division of The Economist Group, Karachi has been ranked lowest amongst the least habitable cities in the world.

The ‘City of Lights’, Karachi scored the 134th position consecutively for the second time in the listing of the 140 cities, barely staying above cities like Port Moresby, Dhaka, Tripoli, Lagos and Damascus. While Karachi is declared as the sixth worst city to live in, Melbourne stays at the 1st position of best liveable city in the same research.

The ranking is based on the quantitative and qualitative factors including the stability of life, healthcare, culture, education, environment and infrastructure. The Least liveable cities according to “The Global Livability Report 2017 —The Economist Intelligence Unit” only include "cities or business centres that people might want to live in or visit" thus excluding cities that are under difficult circumstances like Kabul or Baghdad.

Australia and Canada shines the list of the most liveable cities with Melbourne securing the first position for the seventh time in a row.
