THE 26 HAPPIEST, RICHEST, HEALTHIEST AND MOST CRIME – FREE COUNTRIES TO LIVE IN THE WORLD – AND #1 IS?

.

The Legatum Institute, a think-tank based in London just released its annual global Prosperity Index, a huge survey that ranks the most prosperous countries in the world. The index looks at the 142 countries in the world which have the most available data.

.

You probably think that prosperity is just another word for financial success, but the Legatum Institute think differently.

.

The amount of money a country has is obviously a big factor in its prosperity but there is a lot more to it than that.

.

As a result the Legatum Institute compares 89 different variables. These variables range from traditional indicators like GDP per capita and the number of people in full-time work, to more interesting figures such as the number of secure internet servers a country has and how well rested people feel on a day-to-day basis.

.

The variables are then split into eight sub-indices. These are: Economy, Entrepreneurship & Opportunity, Governance, Education, Health, Safety & Security, Personal Freedom, Social Capital

.

Once everything has been calculated, the full index is created, and these are the results. — Business Insider

.

United States — The world’s most powerful country scored higher than any other in the Legatum Institute’s health index, but citizens are amongst the least safe and secure in this list. The USA was 33rd in this sub-index.

.

Canada — according to the Prosperity Index, Canada is the true land of the free, its citizens enjoy the highest levels of personal freedom of any nation surveyed. It fell one place from fifth.

.

A PERSONAL NOTE:

.

Have we been misled?

Isn’t the U.S. The Land of The Free and The Home of The Brave?
