What countries have the best quality of life? A country’s quality of life is an important indicator which helps evaluate the well being of the individuals who make up the population of a nation in particular and that of society, in general. If you are wondering how your country is doing in terms of quality of life, we have compiled a list of 20 nations that are leaders in this department.
The countries in our top 20 were ranked according to how they fare on the Human Development Index, a statistical score which takes income, life expectancy, and education into account.
France barely made our countdown, coming in the last position. Although still one of Europe’s superpowers, this year, France has dropped a few positions, being the 9th country from the old continent to make the top twenty. With a gross national income per capita of $ 30,277 and a life expectancy of a little over 80 years, France is still a pretty cool place to live in.
At the other end of the spectrum, we have Norway, who is not only Europe’s leader in terms of quality of life, but also number one in our countdown. Apart from being the highest ranking nation in the Human Development Index, Norway also has the highest gross national income per capita out of the 20 countries discussed here ($48,688).
We would like to present you with the top 20 countries with the best quality of life. Apart from France and Norway, our top twenty also includes nations such as Singapore, Iceland, and Sweden. Also, we would like to suggest to take a look at the top 10 richest Cities in the world.
Let’s take a look at the countdown.
