Australia is officially the world’s most desirable place to live …..according to a survey of nearly 28,000 people from 11 countries.
Boston Consulting Group recenly carried out the survey, where 34% picked Australia as the country they would most like to live (besides their own). Canada came second, USA third and Switzerland fourth.
The selection criteria included economic opportunity, education and standard of living. Participants in the survey came from the USA, Canada, Germany, UK, France, Spain, Italy, Japan, India, Brazil and Australia.
The Boston Consulting Group survey isn’t the only one to rank Australian living standards as being the most desirable on earth. Australia topped the OECD’s “Better Life” index for the past three years, thanks to high levels of income, good employment prospects, standards of education and sense of community.
Overall, Australians are more satisfied with their lives than the OECD average. 84% say they have more positive experiences in an average day than negative ones, while the average is just 80%.
So, I guess the survey confirms what we Aussies have known all along – there really is NO place like home!
