where-to-be-born-map3Our friends over at The Economist have done it again.  They have compiled the list of the best countries to be born.

Max Fisher, (The Economist) writes:

The study incorporates hard data on facets such as economic opportunity, health standards and political freedoms; subjective “quality of life” surveys; and economic forecasts for 2030, when an infant born today would be entering adulthood. Even gender equality, job security (as measured by unemployment data), violent crime rates and climate are taken into account. … This map is a reminder that being born into a poor society, even one that offers opportunities for new wealth, can still mean life-long challenges.”

Take a look at the survey below and see how lucky you are…
