Auckland and Wellington are among the top 12 places in the world to live, according to an annual ranking of the world's cities by quality of living.

Mercer's annual Worldwide Quality of Living Survey, covering 215 cities, helps governments and multinational companies place employees on international assignments.

Each city is ranked based on 39 criteria, including political, social, economic and environmental factors, personal safety and health, education, transport and other public services.

Cities are compared with New York, which has a base index score of 100.

Zurich was ranked the best city to live in, while Baghdad was the worst.

The moves were mainly due to strong internal stability relative to other cities.

Auckland is the major economic and financial centre of New Zealand. The city's economy is based largely on services and commerce. Most major international corporations have an Auckland office; the most expensive office space is around lower Queen Street and the Viaduct Basin in the Auckland Central Business District, where many financial and business services are located.

The largest commercial and industrial areas of the Auckland Region are in the southeast of Auckland City and the western parts of Manukau City, mostly bordering the Manukau Harbour and the Tamaki River estuary.
