The factors that determine quality of life in any country depend on the specific criteria involved. However, in most cases, the factors which indicate the level of quality of life in a country are tied to infrastructural development within the country. Among the other measures linked to quality of life are urbanization level, educational standards, security standards, and the citizens’ ability to partake in leisure activities. Changes in a country’s economic conditions, increases or decreases in GDP, and employment rates also have much influence on the lives of citizens of a country. Housing, life expectancy, and distribution of income are also determinants of a country’s quality of life.
