The Global Retirement Index (GRI) examines 44 countries of the world and ranks them based on 18 factors grouped into four main categories:

  • Health: health expenditure per capita, life expectancy, and uninsured health expenditure.
  • Quality of life: happiness, water and sanitation, air quality, environmental factors, and living environment.
  • Material well-being: per capita income, income equality, and employment level.
  • Retirement finance: government debt, elderly dependency, interest rates, inflation, governance, tax pressure, and non-performing bank loans.

  3. Iceland
  4. Ireland
  5. Australia
  6. New Zealand

  • Norway also has the highest score of all countries in the "Governance" category, which is assessed by the level of corruption, political stability, and government effectiveness.
