Cleveland called most livable city

CLEVELAND - Cleveland now shares the title as America's most livable city.

It's tied with Pittsburgh on a new list from an industry analysis group based in London. The two cities also rank 26th together among the best places to live in the entire world.

The Economist Intelligence Unit looked at more than 125 cities, judging them on their stability, health care, culture, environment, education and infrastructure.

Mayor Jane Campbell isn't surprised that Cleveland fared so well. She says it's one of the few places where you can enjoy big-city sports, music and theater - and can still afford the price of a ticket.

According to the list, the world's top city overall is Vancouver, Canada.
