Norway Among Top OECD Countries for Well-Being and Health Indicators

Country Correspondent: Birgitte Graverholt

A new report by the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has found that relative to other high-income countries, Norway performs very well across various indicators of residents’ well-being. Life expectancy at birth has increased by two years since 2005, and average life expectancy is now two years higher than the average for OECD countries. This position is in contrast to the United States, which ranked in the bottom third of countries for life expectancy. Both countries ranked in the top third of countries for the percentage of adults who perceive themselves as being in “good” or “very good” health.
