The Global Liveability Index of 140 cities around the world, which looks at the least and most livable cities, has released its list for the year 2019.
The research, conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit, has listed five out of the 10 least livable cities in the world from Africa.
According to the index, the ratings were arrived at using more than 30 qualitative and quantitative factors spanning five broad categories, weighted as follows: stability (25%), healthcare (20%), culture and environment (25%), education (10%), and infrastructure (20%).
There were also in-house analysts and local contributors tasked with rating for qualitative factors. Scores were compiled on a scale of 1-100.
“Conflict and economic crisis define the cities that have struggled in our index over the past year,” The Economist Intelligence Unit report said.
