Abstract/Summary Using a social determinants of health lens, liveable communities are regarded as safe, attractive, socially cohesive and inclusive, and environmentally sustainable, with affordable and diverse housing linked via public transport, walking, and cycling to employment, education, public open space, local shops, health and community services, and leisure and cultural opportunities. The notion of liveability and how best to measure it, has become a key priority for the State of Victoria, Australia. Yet, until recently, limited systematic research has examined the influence of 'liveability' on health and wellbeing, and even less attention has been paid to how best to measure 'liveability' within a policy context.
