Israel ranked 18th best country in the world to live

The United Nations published its Human Development Index. The index measures development in countries throughout the world, and assigns them a mark, based on three main parameters: life expectancy, education, and income.

 

Israel has secured the 18th ranking on this year’s United Nations Human Development Index (HDI). Israel has gone up one place since last year, having come in 19th in 2014. Published annually, the HDI ranks 188 countries in terms of economic strength, education, health, average life expectancy, and gross national product per-capita, as some of the parameters related to quality of life.

 

This year, Israel came out ahead of Japan (20), France (22), Spain (26), and Italy (27). For the 12th year in a row, Norway has earned the top spot on the HDI list, and this year was followed by Australia (2) and Switzerland (3).

 

The country ranked last on the index was Niger. The bottom of the list included other African countries like Eritrea (186), Chad (185), and Burundi (184). Most Middle East nations were not given high rankings – Egypt (108), Jordan (80), and Lebanon (67).
