If It Were My Home: Comparing Countries

If you are curious about what life would be like if you lived somewhere else, check out If It Were My Home.

I learned that, by living in Canada, I apparently have 4.01% more free time than if I lived in my native USA. Also, had I been born in Canuckistan, I’d have had an 18.73% lesser chance of dying at infancy.

However, if I were to live in Australia, I’d have 10.41% fewer babies and spend 53.58% less on health care.

Practically speaking, these cannot be quantified at an individual level, but make great conversational departure points.
