Iceland Most Desirable Country to Live In

Iceland is the world’s most desirable country to live in, according to an annual index on human development published by the UN Development Program yesterday, based on factors like life expectancy, education levels and real per capita income.

Iceland knocked Norway off its throne, which has been rated as the most desirable country to live in for the past six years, transworldnews.com reports.

Norway currently ranks second, followed by Australia, Canada and Ireland. Sub-Saharan Africa is at the other end of the scale with Sierra Leone as the least desirable country to live in at #177.

The UN used data from 2005 to create its Human Development Index for 2007.
