America just isn’t that liveable compared to the rest of the world it seems.

The annual global “liveability” ranking of cities saw the top 10 spots mostly split between Australia, Canada and Japan, according to CNBC. No American city made the top 20.

The ranking is put together by the Economist Intelligence Unit and includes 140 cities in a process which considers healthcare, culture, infrastructure, crime and conflict, and education among others as factors in scoring.

The highest-ranked American city was Honolulu at 23. Here’s a look at which cities made the top 10. [CNBC]Erin Hudson
