City Livability Rankings, And The Struggle For The Complete City ("Do such rankings have merit? Are the right criteria used? How can they leave out housing affordability? Do they have a bias against larger, denser cities like New York? What is livability anyway, and is it the same as "quality of life"? Does it reflect livability for everyone, or just the well-off?
