10 Countries With The Best Climate For Longevity

Page 1 of 11

Most people want to live a happy, healthy, and long life, which is something that can fairly easily be achieved in one of the 10 countries with the best climate for longevity.

It’s news to me prior to checking out this article that the place you live determines how long you could potentially live. It makes sense, though, because your environment impacts your health and wellbeing. Now I’m going to be overly conscious of the fact that I’m living in a country that doesn’t crack the top five, but top ten is good enough for me. There are certainly improvements that can be made in the US to help people live longer.

We compiled our information from the World Factbook and the World Health Organization. To rank the countries, we primarily took into consideration the HDI (Human Development Index) score. HDI is defined by the UN Development Program as “a summary measure of average achievement in key dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life, being knowledgeable and have a decent standard of living.” The HDI score contributes to the average life expectancy, so they tend to go hand-in-hand.

There are a variety of factors that contribute to life expectancy, including improvements in public health, nutrition, and medicine. These are the factors that make up a country’s “climate,” instead of the literal weather climate. The Royal Geographical Society believes the life expectancy of developed countries will continue to grow until it reaches its peak at around 85-87 years.

Canada, which — spoiler alert — appears on this list, does actually have some warm cities, and if you want to check them out take a look at the 10 Warmest Sunniest Places to Live in Canada. Keep reading to see the rest of our list of the 10 countries with the best climate for longevity:
