The positions increased from 2021 when the Covid-19 pandemic had forced the cities’ rankings to slip. Toronto had occupied the 20th position back then.

On the flip side, Damascus, Tripoli and Lagos have come last because of their unsafe way of life and prevalence of terrorism.

The conducting body of the survey, EIU analyses and monitors the impact of global development on population and cities. Each year, reports are published on the livability of cities worldwide based on criteria such as infrastructure, education, healthcare, stability, culture and environment. The 2022 survey was based on 172 cities, an increase from 139 cities in 2021.

Due to improvement in living standards, the overall scores of the cities showed an increase this year. With more and more people being vaccinated, the culture and environment scores improved for cities. The healthcare scores increased with the pressure on the medical system decreasing. However,  the average stability score has decreased.
