The quality of life in Dubai is again rated the best in the Middle East and Africa region, according to the latest report by a recruitment consultancy firm.

For the third consecutive year, Dubai has maintained its regional top spot in Mercer’s 2015 Quality of Living survey, which ranks different cities in the world according to political and social environment, medical care and health considerations, public services, recreational facilities and natural environment, among others.

Dubai landed the 74th spot in the global rankings. Overall, Vienna topped the list, followed mostly by European cities: Zurich, Auckland, Munich, Vancouver, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Geneva, Copenhagen and Sydney in the top 10 list.

In the Middle East region, Abu Dhabi came second, with Muscat and Doha following behind in the third and fourth place, respectively. Abu Dhabi has moved up one place in the global ranking, from 78th in 2012 to 77th this year, although Dubai’s position has dropped one place from 2012.
