The spatial urban liveability index (ULI) is a tool to inform localised interventions supporting creation of healthier, more sustainable cities. The Urban Liveability Index and its 15 component indicators were calculated for 1,550,641 residential address proxy sample points across the urban portion of Greater Melbourne using ABS census data and other data sources.

Construction of the pilot index is described in Higgs, C., Badland, H., Simons, K. and Giles-Corti, B. The Urban Liveability Index: developing a policy-relevant urban liveability composite measure and evaluating associations with transport mode choice. Int J Health Geogr 18, 14 (2019). https://doi.org/10.1186/s12942-019-0178-8.

The revised 15 indicator version of the Urban Liveability Index presented here was described in Higgs, C., Badland, H., Simons, K. and Giles-Corti, B. Urban liveability and adult cardiometabolic health: policy-relevant evidence from a cross-sectional Australian built environment data linkage study. npj Urban Sustainability (2021; publication forthcoming).
