Which country can provide a child born in the year 2013 the oppourtunities needed for a safe, prosperous and healthy life in the coming years? The Economist Intelligence Unit‘s earnest attempt to find out has produced the where-to-be-born index (quality of life index) which shows Switzerland is the best country for a baby to enter the world in 2013 while Nigeria is the worst. Even Warren Buffet, one of the wealthiest men in the world attributed his success to being born in the right country (USA at the time). It is worth noting that there are about 196 +/- 1 countries in the world and the index ranks just 80 of them. The index was calculated based on 11 indicators, some like geography are fixed while others like demography change over time.
