    Note: the three indicators are life expectancy, satisfaction with life, and carbon footprint.

    It is not a measure of happiness, it is a measure of how efficiently the country use their resources to make their population happy.

    It's a measure of how efficiently governments cover up their citizen's misery and troubles.

    I'd like to agree with you, but I'm in a crappy mood today.

    The infant mortality map shows yet more proof that Nationalized Healthcare > Private Healthcare.

    No, it's not.

    Best countries in this category are all wealthy countries, with the exception of Cuba.

    Ironically, most of these nations are among those who score lowest in fertility rates.

    That's the solution: no birth, no infant mortality!
    The root is grasped.

    Just to make it clear - this is a statistics for life births, so the fertility rate doesn't affect the numbers in any way.

    Yes, it seems that more developed societies tend to have better health care and lower fertility rates. But that's hardly surprising, right?
