Not sure what all that means in effect, nor who compiled it, but amazing the countries that beat Spain too.
I wonder how the various crime figures stack up if there’s such an index 😉

it obviously doesn’t take regulation or justice in to account!!

HDI looks at literacy rates, income, life expectancy, etc….
the one area I saw (quick glance) where the UK betters Spain is in GDP per capita

Guess the HDI reflects fairly essential components for ones well – being Fuengi. Suspect that we shouldn’t be surprised about the Spanish GDP figures being better than ours.

One study a few years ago rated the Torrevieja area for the best quality of life in Europe 😆 Obviously all based on stats, they couldn’t have visited the place 🙄

😆 I had to laugh when reading the post on Torrevieja, yes it’s right, it’s an awful mass build urbanisation of sinilar properties.
I think the W.H.O. rate it (C. Blanca), as being healthy to live in for sun and air quality, too bad the properties are not worth much anymore.

It’s an interesting index that has standard of living as one of its three main determinants and then puts Ireland and Iceland in its top 5 for 2009.
