Quality Of Life Index 2010: Which Country Has It Best? (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 03/18/10 06:12 AM ET   Updated: 09/20/11 12:17 PM ET

International Living has released their 30th annual Quality of Life Index, which attempts to answer the question of what is the best place in the world to live.

Using what seems to be a semi-statistical reasoning (data is used, but so is personal experience), the countries have been ranked in 10 categories - Cost of Living, Culture and Leisure, Economy, Environment, Freedom, Health, Infrastructure, Safety and Risk, and Climate.

As usual, the rankings have provoked equal shock and happiness from different quarters - Brits seem exceptionally upset, although not surprised, that their ranking has dropped below that of the Czech Republic.

Check out the top ten below, and let us know what you think of the rankings.

1st - France
 
Pros World's best health care system, good food



Cons Tiresome bureaucracy, high taxes
