Australia ranks second-best in the world for its quality of life, the UN annual survey says.
Australia has been ranked as the second-best country in the world for its quality of life by a UN report that assessed economic, education and life-expectancy data.
The nation’s “Human Development Index” (HDI) was measured at 0.935 out of a maximum score of one, coming second to Norway and beating Switzerland, which has held on to third place in 2015’s annual report.
The top three rankings, Norway, Australia and Switzerland, are unchanged from a year ago.
The score was calculated by crunching data on what the UN says are the “three basic dimensions of human development”. They are: life expectancy at birth, mean and expected years of schooling and standard of living, which is measured by gross national income per capita.
Australians can expect to live on average to about 82 1/2 years, have a mean 13 years of schooling and the gross national income per person is $58,618.
And despite Australian women living on average four years longer and spending more time hitting the books, men’s average gross national income was significantly higher at $70,620 compared with the woman’s average of $46,727.
In Norway, the only country ranked higher than Australia, life expectancy was lower at 81.6 years and the mean years of schooling were 12.6 but citizens enjoy a much bigger slice of the national pie.
The gross national income per capita in the number-one country was a whopping $US64,992 ($90,148), dwarfing the $US680 measured in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which came in way down the list of 188 countries at 176.
A steady increase in Australia’s HDI has been revealed by the report, with growth averaging 0.32 between 1990 and 2014.
Australia’s trans-Tasman neighbours didn’t fare as well, with New Zealand slipping from seventh spot to a joint ninth position with Canada.
The UK came in at number 14 in the HDI report.
