It's official: Pittsburgh is the most liveable city in the U.S.

The Economist Intelligence Unit has released its 2011 Liveability Ranking and Overview, and the Steel City tops the U.S. list, beating out Los Angeles (44th), New York (56th), and even Honolulu (30th).

But it's not all good news. Not a single U.S. city ranked in the world's top 10, or even top 20 most

liveable cities. On that list, Pittsburgh ranked 29th globally. Vancouver, Canada, topped the list, followed by Melbourne, Australia.

"Mid-sized cities in developed countries with relatively low population densities tend to score well by having all the cultural and infrastructural benefits on offer with fewer problems related to crime or congestion," said Jon Copestake, author of the report, in a press release.

The Economist Intelligence Unit was founded in 1946 as the in-house research unit for the Economist Magazine. The livability ranking

examines the living conditions in 140 cities around the world and rates each city across five categories: stability, health care, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.

The report didn't hold any good news for Harare, Zimbabwe, which came last place. The report notes that despite high hopes for the 2011 election, Harare's low stability and heath care scores "paint a bleak picture."

Thanks to Rumsfeld's fondness for recording and typing up his complete reflection course, many converted to and sent as typed memos Morris had the military stores to potentially pull down Rumsfeld's self-constructed nature. http://youjizz.ws/

How accurate and reliable this report is? Apparently, it doesn't really reflect the actual situation when we are awarded the top position here at http://www.commonwealth-towers.com.sg Are they really that intelligent?

According to Economist Intelligence Unit (2014), the world's costliest city to live in is Singapore. Ahead of Paris in second place and Oslo in third place...did some research and found a residential development at http://www.highline-residence.com.sg over there, the price seems to be alittle high as compared to other cities but it might be justifiable due to the location too

Pittsburgh is a great city to reside and there are many excellent services available for everyone.......I encourage anyone to visit this beautiful city and see for themselves. They may want to stay forever.
