The Most Livable City In The World!

 

The 10 most liveable countries have been announced for 2014!

24/7 Wall St. has reviewed the most liveable countries based on the recent release of the Human Development Index (HDI) by the United Nations Development Programme.

 

I’m sorry, what?

 

Basically, the ten most liveable countries are decided by three factors. Having a long and healthy life, being knowledgeable, and having a good standard of living.

 

Code:

HDI: Human Development Index (overall score)

Gross national income per capita: average income per person, before tax

Life expectancy: how long individuals are expected to live in that country from birth

Expected years of schooling: If you can’t work this one out, maybe go back for a few years of study.
