It’s official: UN declares Australia 2nd best country in the world.

 

Australia has ranked 2nd in the UN’s annual Human Development Index (HDI) report.

The HDI is calculated using various factors including life expectancy, education and gross national income.
Australia’s score came in at 0.935, while Norway took out the top spot with 0.945.

We also placed ahead of Switzerland, Denmark and Netherlands.

Australia did well in all three disciplines – with a life expectancy of 82.4 years, an average schooling period of 13 years, and an average annual income of $42,261. Norway had very similar results to us, except their average income was over $20,000 higher than us.

Even still, SLAY ‘STRAYA!
