Lists & Rankings: The World's Best Countries

"A Newsweek Study of Health, Education, Economy and Politics."

Access Complete Package: The World's Best Countries

Access: Interactive Infographic/Database

Numerous ways to sort and present data.

You should read this article about how the rankings were generated and created.

In Newsweek's first-ever Best Countries special issue, we set out to answer a question that is at once simple and incredibly complex—if you were born today, which country would provide you the very best opportunity to live a healthy, safe, reasonably prosperous, and upwardly mobile life? Many organizations measure various aspects of national competitiveness. But none attempt to put them all together. For this special survey, then, Newsweek chose five categories of national well-being—education, health, quality of life, economic competitiveness, and political environment—and compiled metrics within these categories across 100 nations.

This page offers sources and methodology.
