Best countries for life - level 2, A12

The North of Europe is the best place for living in the whole world. This information is based on work possibilities, living conditions and how much free time people have.

First place goes to Denmark and second place goes to Norway. The best country outside Europe is Canada in 14th place.

There is very interesting information about free time for one person in one day. If we look at all the people in one country (children, workers, pensioners etc) and look at their total time spent at work, we will see the country with the most free time possible. The winners are again the Danish. In Denmark the usual amount of free time for one person is 16 hours a day. So if you want to find a job and also enjoy your free time, the best country to live in is Denmark. The fact that 23 places out of the first 25 go to Europe is also important information.
