Recent Survey Reveals Lagos Is Third Worse CityTo Live In


A new ranking has rated the commercial nerve centre of Nigeria and centre of excellence Lagos, as the third worst place to live in out of 140 cities surveyed.

This report was compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit in its 2012 Global Live ability Survey.

The live ability report which surveyed 140 cities around the world to assess the best or worst living conditions gave Lagos the 138th position.

This was a drop from its 137th position in the 2011 ranking. Following closely after Lagos was Port Moresby which took the 139th position and Dhaka, Bangladesh as the 140th position making it the worst liveable city in the world.

Ranking first on the list as the city with the best living conditions is Melbourne, Australia with an overall rating of 97.5. Vienna, Australia ranked second while Vancouver, Canada ranked third. Johannesburg and Pretoria, South Africa took the 92nd and 96th positions respectively.

London, UK is ranked 55th, while Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the next host of the Olympics also shares the 92nd position with Johannesburg.

The live ability report surveys 140 locations around the world to assess the best or worst living conditions. Cities are scored on political and social stability, crime rates
and access to quality healthcare. It also measures the diversity and standard of cultural events and the natural environment; education (school and university); and the standard of infrastructure, including public transport.

The Economist Intelligence Unit produces regular reports on the “reports on the live ability”, and cost of living, of the world’s major cities, which receive wide coverage in international news sources.

With the efforts of Governor Raji Fashola, Lagos state should rank better next time or what is your take on this latest ranking?
