Australia - A privileged standard of Life
The United Nations has declared Australia to be the second best country in the world to live due to the excellent quality of life afforded to Australian residents.
The UN came to this conclusion based on an annual survey evaluating indices of social and economic welfare in 174 countries. Australia ranks highly due to its record in providing access to education, high life expectancy, and low levels of crime.
In a separate study of 130 world cities the Economic Intelligence Unit of The Economist qualified Melbourne as one of the two best cities in the world to live, followed by Perth in third place, and Sydney, Brisbane y Adelaide in eighth place.
The study named five Australian cities in the top eight cities in the world to live.
“We really found very little to complain about in Melbourne, it is nearly the perfect city”, said Bill Ridgers, editor of the study.
Commonly the Australian life style is perceived as more relaxed than in other countries. In part this is due to the wealth of the country and the absence of extreme poverty, but also the friendly attitude of ordinary people.
With a strong economy, even in these times of financial crisis, Australia is the perfect place to be young and fancy free or to bring up a family.
