Out of a total of 173 cities, Karachi is placed 169th on the EIU’s Global Livability Index 2023. Only four cities are ranked lower than Karachi: Lagos, Algiers, Tripoli, and Damascus.

The Economist Group’s research and analysis branch, the Economist Intelligence Unit, uses research and analysis to provide forecasting and consulting services.

Only this particular city in Karachi is listed on the index.

According to Dawn, the index measures living circumstances based on five categories, including stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure, and concentrates on the post-COVID recovery of cities around the world.

The livability factor is scored and evaluated on a scale of 1 to 100, where 1 is deemed intolerable and 100 is regarded optimal.

The city had a less-than-ideal overall score of 42.5. With a score of 20, which is identical to 2022, it did the worst on the stability indicator, indicating that little has changed over the past year. It received a 50 on the healthcare scale, a 38.7 on the environment and culture scale, a 75 on education, and a 51.8 on infrastructure.

The performance of Karachi on the EIU index has not been great either. Karachi was listed 136th out of 140 cities in the ranking back in 2019, and there was no report released in 2020. It was ranked 134th out of 140 cities in 2022.

The majority of the top-ranked cities on the ranking are from Canada and Western Europe. According to Dawn, the Austrian capital Vienna came in first place for the second consecutive year and received a flawless score of 100 on four of the five measures.
