Europe OUTGUNS the rest of the world: Top cities by Quality of Living

Mercer Human Resource Consulting Worldwide Quality of Living Survey 2007

Canada, New Zealand and Australia are the best countries outside of Europe.

Good to see cities like New York at the bottom with all their slums and high crime.

Nothing too surprising...but always good to see that there are a couple of Asian cities in the top 50 !

Not to mention their filthy people.

Don't know how Sydney is rated 9th. It's the filthiest city in Australia.

Seems to me that the scores are close enough that there is not much difference. Anyway, it depends on how much money you have.

This is so relative. I wouldn't live in Geneve for all the gold of the world. I found it so depressing. I prefer other kind of life (bigger cosmopolitan cities, such as Berlin, Sydney, Toronto) but it's all a matter of taste.

Melbourne is a much better place to live than Sydney in my opinion.

Aye, and there wasn't that much difference in score in the top 50

It's all relative, New York is a great night life city

All big cities have rough areas. And you didn't say anything about cleanliness.

I personally prefer Europe over the US as a place to live, but New York is nowadays a pretty safe city (unless you go to specific problem spots) and if you want to see slums go to Africa or India or South America, not NY.

i highly doubt zurich has rough areas and most if not all swiss cities are very clean. manhattan probably is clean as it's the area of the rich people but the rest of new york doesn't look so clean like most european cities. if you consider the bronx is just north of manhattan new york shows a huge contrast of poor and rich people.
