Measuring quality of life is not an easy task, so feel free to compare this list with the similar one – Countries with the highest quality of life index – in order to gather more relevant data about the best countries to live in the world. No, these lists aren’t the same, because of different parameters used. Check them both, and let us know – which one is more accurate in your opinion. We’ll be happy to hear what countries you consider having the best quality of life in the world.

To come up with unique but accurate (as possible) ranking for this list, Insider Monkey used data provided by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s A Better Life Index, the United Nation’s Human Development Index, and Economist Intelligence Unit’s Where to be Born Index. Respective rankings for each country in each index are noted. Our ranking was obtained by averaging a country’s rank in all of the indices. Be informed, however, that some countries in this list are not members of the OECD, and some were not included in the Where to be Born Index, for some unknown reason. As such, some of the entries on this list have only 2 ranks, aside from Insider Monkey’s rank. In addition, there are also multiple countries in one entry, having the same Insider Monkey average rank.

Let’s find out if your country of residence is included in among these countries with the best quality of life in the world, shall we?
