The city’s affordability issues are compounded by its low quality of life. In Mercer’s winter 2023 ranking, Beirut was 184th out of 241 cities globally and 14th in its region.

Beirut’s data is based on 689 entries by 62 contributors over the past year, close to Numbeo’s city average of 68.5 contributors.
