Melbourne is no longer considered to be the world's top liveable city. The Economist revealed its top 10 list of liveable cities for 2018, and Melbourne slipped to number two after a seven-year reign in the top spot.

The lucky city at the top of this year's study is Vienna. Vienna usurped Melbourne, as the world's most "livable" city. Austria's capital city ended Melbourne's record 7-year run atop the Economist Intelligence Unit's annual index, titled "The Global Liveability Report 2018." The ranking considers 30 qualitative and quantitative factors to rank 140 cities in order of best living conditions. Those factors include benchmarks such as health care, education, infrastructure, stability and culture/environment, among others.
