A new study has revealed the best countries in the world to be aged 10 to 24. The Global Youth Wellbeing Index was released in early April 2014, ranking 30 countries based on factors such as economic opportunity, citizen participation, education, health, technology and safety. By researching 30 countries, this 44-page report exposed the varying conditions in which around 70% of the world’s young people are living.
This is the first report of its kind, and was produced by three very different groups, all of which are interested in improving outcomes for young people: the Centre for Strategic Studies, the International Youth Foundation and Hilton Worldwide. These three groups teamed up to find out more about the youth of today around the world and how their well being might affect the world's future. After all, youth make up about a quarter of the world’s population (or roughly 1.8 billion people). We've enumerated the 10 countries which have been assessed as the best possible places for teenagers to live as of 2014.
It's worth noting that the countries involved in this research included; Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Egypt, Germany, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Peru, Philippines, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, United Kingdom, United States and Vietnam.

Teens in Australia are having a better time than teens anywhere else on the planet. This paradise down under has a population of about 22 million, great weather, a strong economy, vibrant cities and positive outlook on life. Australia ranked highly in all factors considered by researchers, particularly excelling in the area of education. It also did well on the quality of its education, its job prospects, its safety and its healthy lifestyle.
