US cities fail to make the list of best places to live in the world – Osaka is the only Asian city

  • The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) released this year's Global Liveability Index, with Osaka, Japan, being the only Asian city ranked as one of the world's top 10 best places to live in.
  • The index, which was released last week, placed Osaka, the capital city of Japan’s Osaka Prefecture with a population of over 2 million, in the No. 10 spot, tying with Melbourne, Australia.
  • The Japanese city received a score of 100 for stability, healthcare and education but received a score of 83.1 for culture and environment, which resulted in its No. 10 spot.
  • The EIU added 33 new cities to its liveability ranking, with one-third of the 173 scored cities located in China.
  • U.S. cities are nowhere to be found on the top 10 list of best cities in the world to live in.
