Norway 2. Iceland 3. Australia 4. Luxembourg 5. Canada 6. Sweden 7. Switzerland 8. Ireland 9. Belgium 10. USA 11. Japan 12. Netherlands 13. Finland 14. Denmark 15. UK Furthermore, since 1980 only two countries have consistently ranked at the top and it's not the US and the UK it's Canada and Norway. Switzerland and Japan also made the top ranking over the period, but Canada and Norway pretty much were on top the whole time with the US and UK no where to be found. The point of all this being that you can enjoy a good quality of life in any of these countries and one being better than the other is probably pretty meaningless as a result, but still, perhaps you should check the facts before bragging and discounting the other 20 or 30 developed nations.quote> I'm just wondering but aren't most of the top 9 socialized in medicine in their countries. 'cause when I read that list thats what came to mind about them being the top ones. Anyways, I chose the US. I've lived in 5 different locations, and all have been a good experience. Now I probably would choose to stay here because its what I know, I've never been outside the US. If I had to live somewhere else I'd like to go to Canada probably or somewhere like New Zealand. I wouldnt want to go to Europe, if I had to go there it would be the UK. I dont know Europe seems so forgein to me. lol But as I said, the US rocks. Great life here and a cool place to be.
