Karachi ranked among the world’s least liveable cities

Karachi, once renowned for its modern infrastructure and excellent educational institutions, has again been ranked as the world’s least livable city. This ranking comes from a global survey by The Economist Intelligence Unit, which assessed 173 cities around the world.

The survey evaluated cities based on factors such as healthcare, culture, stability, infrastructure, and education. Karachi ranked 169th, with an overall score of 42.7. The city performed poorly in several areas, especially stability, where it scored just 20.

Karachi’s healthcare received a score of 54.2, while its culture and environment were rated at 35.9. In education, the city did relatively better, scoring 75. Its infrastructure got a score of 51.8.

In contrast, Vienna was rated the most livable city in the world, with an impressive score of 98.4. Copenhagen and Zurich followed closely behind in the rankings.

This disappointing ranking for Karachi highlights the various challenges the city faces. Despite its historical reputation for modern amenities and quality education, issues like political instability, inadequate infrastructure, and environmental concerns have contributed to its low livability score. This survey underscores the urgent need for improvements in key areas to enhance the quality of life for Karachi’s residents.
