Day 22 Quality Of Life

Quality of life differs all over the world and the difference between countries can be extreme. A countries quality of life can be affected by many factors, such as natural disasters, economic depression, disease and many more.

Mladen Adamovic founded Numbeo which is a website that measures the quality of life all over the world, by country or city. To measure quality of life, Numbeo looks at 6 different areas, these are Cost of Living, Property Affordability, Pollution, Crime Rate, Healthcare and Traffic.

The highest and lowest 10 scoring countries out of 83 on Numbeo today, are:

The Highest Scoring

  1. Switzerland
  2. Denmark
  3. Netherlands
  4. Finland
  5. Austria
  6. Australia
  7. Iceland
  8. Germany
  9. New Zealand
  10. Norway

The Lowest Scoring (10 being the lowest)

  1. Indonesia
  2. Vietnam
  3. Egypt
  4. Peru
  5. Sri Lanka
  6. Philippines
  7. Kenya
  8. Bangladesh
  9. Iran
  10. Nigeria

I checked Numbeo and the UK is rated number 21, which is fairly high up on the list. To help encourage a better quality of life I pledge to car share when possible, in hope to reduce the effects I have on traffic and pollution. This may only be small in the grand scheme of things, however the more people who join, the bigger the effect!

Have a look to see where your country or even city lands on the scale. Maybe there is something you can do to improve your countries quality of life or help a country who’s quality of life is much lower than your own.

Have a nice day!
