United Nations analyzed 200 countries across several categories including education, gender equality, financial wealth and life expectancy.

The United Nations recently analyzed 200 countries across a number of categories, including life expectancy, education, gender equality, and financial wealth before publishing its annual Human Development Report, which ranks where people live longer with healthy lives —in other words, they are countries that are best to live in.

These 12 countries were declared as the finest to live in after scoring high in the categories mentioned above.

  1. Norway
  2. Australia
  3. Switzerland
  4. Germany
  5. Denmark
  6. Singapore
  7. The Netherlands 
  8. Ireland
  9. Iceland
  10. Canada
  11. The United States
  12. Hong Kong

The UN's report shows this world is becoming a better place to live. Although 800 million people in the world still sleep hungry every day, over 1 billion people have grown out of extreme poverty in the past 25 years.

The report also shed light on the drawbacks that work against human progress, such as discrimination, intolerance, and social norms which generally target vulnerable groups like women and racial minorities, leading to them facing a prejudice in a number of areas, including employment, education, and property rights.
