Auckland still at top of the rankings

By Julie Halligan

Auckland has been ranked the world’s third best city for quality of living for the fourth time.

The City of Sails came third in three previous Quality of Living surveys by recruitment consultancy Mercer, last year, in 2014 and in 2012.

The survey ranks 230 cities on factors such as culture and environment, political stability, safety, housing, education and ease of doing business.

Austrian capital Vienna was the top ranked city globally, followed by Zurich in Switzerland. The cities have held their rankings since the survey began in 2010.

Wellington ranked 12th for the third time, and Sydney was Australia’s top ranked city at 10 in the rankings table. Melbourne was the next highest Australian city ranked at 15.
