Career Opportunities: We all know that income is vital for our survival. Imagine a country with no employment opportunities. How can you survive without money? This significant parameter is a mixture of income inequality, social mobility, population, youth unemployment, etc.
Healthcare: Imagine you have ample money and freedom, but your health is deteriorating. Would that add any value to your life? Our safety must be our foremost priority. Factors such as safety, life expectancy, road safety and air pollution contribute to the health sector.
Freedom and Life Satisfaction: Let me ask you, would you stay in a country where you have to live or work under someone else’s conditions? You may not be happy with this, right?. The right to liberty and life satisfaction is a combination of gender equality, human rights, general life satisfaction scale, and passport strength.
Finance: When you are a person with big dreams, you think of gaining yourself financial stability. That’s what a country needs to do. Only Switzerland has scored 100 in terms of finance.
The nations with the luckiest people were chosen based on analyzing all the data collected. The sheer amount of development these countries have had certainly deserves mention.
People with ample employment opportunities, better health facilities, financial stability, and a better standard of living, constitute a privileged nation. Being among the luckiest nations is not a matter of luck; it requires hard work and consistency.
For example, Canada and the United States of America are power allies, neighbors, and world leaders. However, when data is compared, Canada has a much higher score than the United States. Especially if we compare life satisfaction and the safety & health scores of both countries.
From infrastructural development to crime rate and healthcare facilities, Canada has been working more to develop the citizens’ social standing first. Hence it is consistently listed among the top 15 nations with the luckiest people.
