Which Countries Around the World are the Most Privileged?

By Mitch Rice

To find and rank the most privileged countries of the world, a study was conducted. It looked at how lucky people are when it comes to the opportunities, freedom, health and finance offered by their countries. The study by ABCD Agency, which is not the link, but a casino for some reason paid for by a marketing company, was completed in July 2021. It included all 37 member states of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), as well as Argentina, Bulgaria, Brazil, India, Russia, Singapore and South Africa.

A total of 19 influencing factors were researched to measure the privileges of a country and they came under the below four main criteria –

  1. Career Opportunities – People spend most of their lives working so job opportunities are an important factor when it comes to privileges. This mainly delved deeper into the quality of a country’s work environment, income disparity and unemployment ratio.
  2. Safety and Health – This includes the availability of healthcare facilities, quality and standard of hospitals and medicine, and the measures a government has taken to ensure its citizens safety.
  3. Liberty and Life Satisfaction – The freedom of the citizens in every aspect was investigated in this process, and gender equality, human rights and passport strength were included.
  4. Finance The gross domestic earnings of a population reflects on the standard of living for a country’s citizens. This criteria included disposable income, the average wealth and the number of millionaires in the country.
