Find the best quality of life in this list of the 11 countries with the best standard of living. Although, to many, standard of living may be subjective or may vary depending on the individual and his/her current circumstances. There are some factors that most, if not all people agree on, and which determine the standard of living in a country – from the level of pollution, traffic, property and goods price, to healthcare capabilities and benefits, safety and even the general financial power of the people and the country. All of these are taken into account and will be the main reason for the ranking in this list.
