Quality of Living by Countries for 2009

This morning I saw an article about ranking countries based on the quality of living (2009 Quality of Life Index). The ranking is prepared by International Living magazine. To produce the annual Index, the magazine takes into account nine categories: Cost of Living, Culture and Leisure, Economy, Environment, Freedom, Health, Infrastructure, Safety and Risk, and Climate. 

According to the index the first three countries are France, Switzerland and USA, and the last three countries are Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Few countries such as Iraq and Afganistan are assigned 0 for safty and risk rating. Bulgaria is 42nd, Spain is 27th, Turkey 65th. The full list of the ranking can be found at 2009 Quality of Life Index.
