Canada among top 10 most livable countries

by |
With almost 200 countries in the world being in the top 10 is a real achievement. Based on figures from the United Nations Human Development Index Canada ranks 8th in the world for ‘liveability’. The index ranks countries on three key markers; having a healthy and long life; being knowledgeable; and having a good standard of living. Income is an important part of the equation with the number one country, Norway, having an income per capita of $63,909; Canada’s is $41,887. Among the other factors that count towards the ranking our life expectancy is 81.5 year while schooling duration is 15.9 years. Canada beats Singapore and Denmark in the top 10, but comes in below New Zealand (7), Germany (6), US (5), Netherlands (4), Switzerland (3), Australia (2) and Norway (1). Read the full story.
