    I don't know where they would account for that stuff, I'd imagine they just assume it's common in cities above a certain population and don't really account for it at all.

    I think culture just accounts for the richness of the cities history. Not surprisingly America's cities are given low scores because relatively speaking, there's not much history in the cities and how they measured it was based on a map of World Heritage sites within a city.

    I'm just looking at the 2012 list and not many countries rank high culturally. Rome and Berlin are the only cities from the top 23 that have the top ranking. 1 being the best, 5 being the worst. Amsterdam, Osaka, Stockholm and London have a 2. Paris and Seoul have a 3. All the rest are 4 or 5.

    US has 8 of the top 23 from 2012.

    14. Washington DC
    15. Chicago
    16. New York
    17. Los Angeles
    18. San Francisco
    19. Boston
    21. Atlanta
    23. Miami

    Another area American cities are poorly ranked is on the "sprawl".

    Shouldn't be surprising that America has a crappy "sprawl" score.

    Well, I guess not. DC has a high culture score. I just assumed that it was a historical look based on the cities that were highly rated.

    Toronto scored 100% on their healthcare measure. So did Berlin, Munich and Tokyo.

    Washington DC scored a 91.7.

    Toronto has a perfect score for stability. That's where it got the boost.

    US cities are all pretty low, New York at 70.

    If New York had a 90 it'd be in the Top 10 it looks like. 100 would put it Top 5.

    I've always liked Boston. Great history & I think the city is pretty.

    If that was a compliment, I would hate to see a criticism.

    That is good as it gets from an American when discussing Canada. Be happy with it.
