Fuzzy clustering analysis is a mathematical method to classify objective things according to their characteristics, affinity, and similarity by establishing fuzzy equivalence relations. It can solve the ambiguity of environment classification better. With the development of cities, the effluent and waste gas discharged by industrial activities have a great impact on the living environment of cities. This paper builds up an evaluation system of urban residential environment by considering society, economy, resources and environment conditions, the results show that the human settlement suitability of Shanghai became better during 2001 to 2016.
