    HPI=39
    Life Expectancy=82.5

    below average for HPI, above average for life expectancy.

    it told me i should move to israel because people there have similar HPI`s.

    It`s almost BS. According to the site, it roughly estimates the index based on the average HPI and the ecological footprint. What it forgets to consider is that the AVG HPI is MEANINGLESS. If I, a single person, lives in my own country, and is the happiest person in the world, my country will probably be ranked #1. Pfff.

    It should be more like "Total HPI / Ecological Footprint"

    Let me update what I just said. Should be:
    Life satisfaction x Life expectancy x Population / Ecological Footprint

    My country is Switzerland.

    HPI: 48.3
    Life expectancy: 80.5

    O.o

    I can`t tell if that`s bad or good - I hope it`s good.
