Australia has four cities out of ten in the world with more quality of life, including who heads the ranking for the fourth consecutive year, Melbourne. To choose it as the city in which it is more advisable to live on the planet, the accessibility of its health and education systems were evaluated as very standard and its low rate crime, infrastructural development, cultural and sports activities are some areas of attractions for which people  name this city as their favorite destination to visit on.  Adelaide (5th place), Perth (7th) and Sydney (9th) are the other three Australian cities in the top ten as the most livable Cities in the world. Another three cities in the table are from Canada: Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary. Europe brings two cities in the ranking, where Vienna is in second position behind Melbourne while Helsinki makes the eighth and Auckland (capital of New Zealand) closes the Top 10.
