 From Thrillist:

For the 2015 installment of its annual Quality of Life Survey, Monocle magazine ranked the livability of the world's cities according to 22 distinct metrics -- from the number of international routes that connect them to the rest of the world, to the amount of violent crime, to the availability of outdoor seating. According to Tyler Brûlé, Monocle's editor-in-chief, the magazine also attempted to break away from its previous nine years of rankings by including new metrics that reward cities for the amount of freedom they afford their residents.
Monocle has a video explaining the 25 cities ranking. Singapore is at 13 (Watch from 3:38) for SG50, Ease of starting a business, and still "super-safe".
