These are the 10 cities where living standards have gone through the floor in the last 5 years

The Economist Intelligence Unit recently released its city liveability rankings — including the best cities in Europe to live in.

As part of that, the EIU also released ten cities which are have seen the biggest decline in their score for liveability since 2010.

Here are the weights they use to work out the score.

  • Stability: 25% — This includes things like the threat of crime and terrorism.
  • Healthcare: 20% — The availability of both public and private care is considered.
  • Culture and environment: 20% — Factors as divergent as climate, corruption, and sports are considered in this category.
  • Education: 10% — Again, public and private indicators are considered.
  • Infrastructure: 25% — Housing, roads, energy, and other basic utilities are considered here.

And here are the 10 cities that have fallen the furthest, and their scores out of 100.
