Sweden Ranked Third Best To Live In

Sweden placed third after Finland and Switzerland when weekly magazine Newsweek listed the 100 countries best to live in.  

The magazine compared countries on everything from education, health and quality of life to political climate and economy. Sweden was placed third, just slightly ahead of Australia, mainly because of high rankings on health care and political climate, newspaper Svenska Dagbladet reports.

But Newsweek points out that it is often easier for smaller countries to rank high in these kinds of comparisons since they require less recourse to maintain a high standard of living.

Burkina Faso and Nigeria were the bottom two countries.
