There is one question that most of us ponder upon at least once in our lifetime. The question is simple,

Which are the world’s most privileged countries?

Disparity around us and many other frustrating events often force us to question if the country we live in is truly a great one or if there are others with a better standard of living.

Let us take a look at the 44 most privileged countries across the globe and discuss the reasons why every human being dreams of settling there.

On what basis this data is compiled? 

These are the factors based on which the data is combined:

  1. Health – this includes the availability of healthcare facilities, quality and standard of hospitals and medicine, and the overall cost of healthcare services. 
  2. Economical- the gross domestic earnings of a nation’s population reflects on the standard of living of the citizens of the place.
  3. Freedom – the freedom of the citizens in every aspect acts significantly in this process. 
  4. Finance last but not least, this point carries a lot of weight as it determines some significant advantages.

Some other important factors include security of the people and prospects, sustainability, ample opportunities in fields of jobs and education, and a peaceful and progressive political environment.
