Prosperity index shows emigrating to Australia now top 6 country in the world


Emigrating to Australia has come towards the top of an index of the most prosperous countries in the world.

Australia has been ranked as the sixth most prosperous country in the Legatum Institute’s new index.

The 2009 Legatum Prosperity IndexTM is the world's only global assessment of wealth and wellbeing. The Index finds that the most prosperous nations in the world are not necessarily those that have only a high GDP, but are those that also have happy, healthy, and free citizens.

Now in its third year, the Index builds on the previous versions with expanded data and refined analysis and assesses 104 nations covering 90 percent of the world’s population.

The index looked at 104 countries in total, analysing them against 79 variables including quality of life and material wealth.

The top 10 countries are:

  1. Finland
  2. Switzerland
  3. Sweden
  4. Denmark
  5. Norway
  6. Australia
  7. Canada
  8. Netherlands
  9. United States
  10. New Zealand

The results are a good indication as to why emigrating to Australia is so popular among people from the UK.

Emigrating to Australia was ranked in the top ten for variables including: personal freedom, health, safety and security, education, economic fundamentals and democratic institutions.

Emigrating to Canada is also a good choice if you want to be wealthy and happy, according to the index, which ranked Canada just after Australia - in seventh place.

The authors of the index hope that the results will offer some food for thought in terms of what constitutes success and prosperity and what makes a country a good place to live.
