When it comes to international measures of health, wealth and happiness, latest findings from the OECD Better Life Index confirm what most of us know deep down: Australian’s have got it pretty good. One area we can improve is work/life balance – where we rate somewhat in the middle of the pack, on par with the US, but behind Canada and the UK.
We may work hard, yet we are a happier nation than France and Germany and the UK, though not quite as happy as Japan, Iceland and New Zealand. One of the reasons for our optimism may be the fact that we can expect some of the best health and aging outcomes of any OECD nation – something worth smiling about.
