Though American cities didn’t fare well in The Economist’s annual global ranking, there were a handful of stars.

Known as The Global Liveability Index, the publication’s ranking report is published every year based on a number of factors like education, healthcare, stability and infrastructure. In the 2018 report, only 10 U.S. cities made it into the top 50–and none of those cities made it into the world’s top 20, as CNBC reported.

But the ranking claimed America performed better than previous years due to a drop in “civil unrest.” Here are the U.S. cities that snagged a spot and their ranking out of the total of 140 cities surveyed. [CNBC]Erin Hudson
