Seattle ranked 4th most liveable city in the USA
Well, the good news is that Seattle has once again been named one of the most liveable cities in the United States. The bad news is that not a single city in the country came close to the top 10. Honestly, we’re not shocked, just a little disappointed.
The Economist’s Intelligence Unit ranked liveability across five broad factors: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure. The closer to 100 a city gets, the more it is considered an ideal location.

With an overall placement of 36th in the world, it’s safe to say that The Economist deems Seattle liveable. We trailed Honolulu (22nd), Atlanta (33rd), and Pittsburgh (34th), so we’re in solid company.
The top 10 cities haven’t changed from 2018, although there was a little shuffling in the list. Vienna, Austria, continues its streak at number 1, while Adelaide rounds off the list at number 10. Three Canadian cities filled out the middle of the top ten, so maybe a trip to Vancouver could show us a thing or two about liveability.
Out of the 140 cities ranked, Damascus in Syria is at the bottom, with a score of 30.7 overall. If you’re curious about seeing the other rankings, you can get a preview on The Economist’s website.
