WE’RE ALL LOOKING to have a decent quality of life, to live in a country where basic needs like healthcare are of a good standard and we can feel safe on the streets.

It’s may not seem like much to ask but, as the maps below show, there is a massive difference in the quality of life in countries across the world.

The maps, put together by Movehub display data from the Quality of Life Index, which takes in factors like safety, healthcare, consumer prices, purchasing power, traffic commute, pollution and property price to income ratio.
