The 44 Most Privileged Nations in the World

There is an old saying that some are born with luck while some acquire luck through privilege. How important is luck for our betterment? Is it true that luck and privilege are the two sides of the same coin?

Up until a few years ago, it was just a verbal statement, and people believed who was the most privileged or luckiest of them all. However, regarding the global ranking of the most privileged people, word of mouth cannot be the decision-maker.

How do you determine who is the luckiest of all?

So, who are these lucky people, and where are they from? With over 200 countries, determining the exact figure was difficult, which is why a long study was conducted based on as many as 19 different variables.

The ABCD agency collected a considerable amount of data based on these 19 factors from numerous nations worldwide. To make it easier, the 19 crucial factors were branched out under four main categories.

Finally, after months of struggle and hard work from hundreds of worldwide analysts, the final data was named the 44 luckiest nations of the world for the year 2021.

The top 5 nations in each category for the privileged nations of the world

Data collected included crucial information like health, passport strength, educational opportunities, gender equality and freedom of voice. The broader classification included –

  • Career Opportunities – Norway ranked with an overall score of 100, followed by Denmark, Iceland, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.
  • Liberty and Life Satisfaction – Norway once again topped the ranking with a total score of 100. It was followed by Denmark, Finland, Luxembourg, and Switzerland.
  • Safety and Health – There is no surprise that Canada led the ranking as it has been consistently used as a role model for the best healthcare system. Italy and Norway held the 4th and 5th ranking with scores of 97.74 and 97.34. Canada’s total score was followed very closely by another new entry, France with 98.64 and Spain with 98.27.
