Zimbabwe’s capital, Harare, has been ranked one of 10 worst cities in the world to live in, according to a survey.

 The Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2017 study said Harare was ranked eight from the worst city to live in among 140 metropolis assessed.
 The only cities worse than Harare are war-torn cities such as Damascus, Tripoli, Dakar and Karachi among others.

Every city is assigned a rating of relative comfort for over 30 qualitative and quantitative factors across five broad categories: stability; healthcare; culture and environment; education; and infrastructure.

Each factor in a city is rated as acceptable, tolerable, uncomfortable, undesirable or intolerable.

For qualitative indicators, a rating is awarded based on the judgment of in-house analysts and in-city contributors.

The scores are then compiled and weighted to provide a score of 1–100, where 1 is considered intolerable and 100 is considered ideal.

Harare had a rating of 42,6.

Melbourne, Vienna, Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland, Helsinki, Hamburg were rated as the most liveable cities in the world.
