Based on the Human Development Index of the United Nations, the three main factors, according to which these 10 countries were selected as 10 best countries for dwelling, are: the long and healthy life, the education and a better life standard.
According to these standards Norway is placed on the top position.
But when we include the financial condition of the whole country in the game as well then Norway moves to the sixth place. In the well developed countries the GDP per capita is high and in Norway the BDP per capita is 63.909 bucks. Merely at the tail end of this list are the African countries with less than 1.25 bucks a day. And if we get the education as a starting point, then in the well developed countries, people spend more than 12 years upgrading them, but in the least developed countries the education can be less than 4 years.

These all make Singapore be in the first place in Asia and take the ninth place among the other countries from all over the world.

8. Canada the GDP per capita here is: 41.887 bucks. The average expectancy rate is 81.5 years and people are spending 15.9 years of their life educating themselves.

6. In Germany the GDP is 43 049 dollars, and the life expectancy rate is 80.7 years. The average spent years in education are 16.3 years. Also, Germany is known as one of the rare countries that give pensions to 100 percent of the population. But this will bring about the retirement age of 65 years nowadays to increase in 67 until 2029. It is obligatory for both the employer and the employee to invest 40 percent of the payment for pension and health policy.
5. The United States of America got to the fifth place, according to all of the above mentioned factors. If we take the 52 308 dollars of GDP per capita, that this will place it on the 11th place in the world. The life expectancy rate is 78.9 years and the average education rate is 16.5 years. They hold the highest economy in the globe with a GDP of 16 trillion dollars for 2012. Yet, this county has very low grades when it comes to the equality of the profit and the gender equality too.
4. The Netherlands is improving from year to year. The GDP is 42 397 dollars per capita. And the Life expectancy is 81 years. On an average scale people spend 17.9 years in education (which puts it in the fifth place in the world). Also the life standard is good here, and the equality of the genders is in a high position. 37, 8 percent of the representatives are women, which is way above than in the USA (where the women in the congress are only 18,2 percent).
3. Switzerland GDP per capita: 53 762 dollars. Life expectancy is 82.6 years. The average education rate is 15.7 years. Among these things this country is known by its political and economic stability. The life expectancy rate only places it on the third place as well. It is not that easy to immigrate there, because this country is not part of the European Union and has recently imposed new quotas for an improved control for possible immigration.
2. Australia is a country that has one of the lowest levels of unemployment in the world – 5.2 percent. And according to the other results for the main features like: the GDP, which is $ 41 524 per capita, the life expectancy rate of 82.5 years (which puts it in the fourth place only), and the average spend years in education 19.9 years, it seems that this country is going pretty well.
1. Norway as we already mentioned is on the first place on this list, with a GDP of 63 909 dollars per capita. The life expectancy rate is 81.5 years and the education rate would be 17.6 years (this only takes it to the sixth place in the world). This is another country like Germany, where 100 percent of the population after the retirement received pension. There is a population of 5 million in Norway and these rates look pretty good. The petroleum incomes are of a great significance for the economy of the country and mostly because of the fact it is exported.
