Hungary is the 33rd "best country in the world" to live in based on an aggregate of five factors, according to a Newsweek report published last week. One hundred countries were rated by the US weekly based on factors such as education, health, quality of life, economic dynamism and political environment.
The first place was snatched by Finland, followed by Switzerland and Sweden. Hungary did best in education, scoring 90.2 points out if 100, and worst in economic terms, with only 46.2 points for economic dynamism. In regional terms, Hungary was outshone by most of its neighbors, including Slovakia, Poland, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia and Estonia. (BBJ)
