Globally, the Quality of Life Index ranked the UAE 15th in the world out of 160 countries evaluated. This reflects the prosperity the UAE has seen in the past years and the result of the ongoing strategic initiatives by the UAE Government across all sectors including economy, security, health and education.
The Economist Intelligence Unit's Quality of Life index relates subjective life satisfaction surveys to objective determinants of the quality of life across 160 countries. The UAE ranking was based on the country's impressive civic development and administration and high GDP growth, as well as family and healthcare services, life expectancy and safety and security.
Abdullah Nasser Lootah, Secretary-General of Emirates Competitiveness Council, said: "While the results are gratifying, our goal is to continue to improve the quality of life of our citizens."
