It is all subjective, regardless of objective criteria.
Just like the ""World's Most Liveable City"' awards - there are so many Gold Medals given for it, by so many different publications - that you cannot really take any notice of it.

Best place to live and work if you're making minimum wage or you're a blue collar worker. Or if you simply enjoy paying 2-3 times more for everything.

COL in Australia is criminal.

Hardly with the most over inflated housing in the world. As I understand civic engagement at 93% pushed Australia in top position. When voter turn out is one of the highest in the world owing to the law,not hard to see why the country rated so highly.

Life happiness is debatable. Having such a high individual debt in such an expensive country is hardly stuff of dreams.
