Norway is the best country to live in

Norway is the best country to live in according to the Human Development Index (HDI) published by the UN [].

“The first Human Development Report introduced a new way of measuring development by combining indicators of life expectancy, educational attainment and income into a composite human development index, the HDI. The breakthrough for the HDI was the creation of a single statistic which was to serve as a frame of reference for both social and economic development. The HDI sets a minimum and a maximum for each dimension, called goalposts, and then shows where each country stands in relation to these goalposts, expressed as a value between 0 and 1" [].

In the current report Germany is on the 5th place in the UN’s ranking, Sweden on the 7th and Denmark on the 15th [].
