OTHER INDEXES 2019
The other indexes comprise of the Perception Index (evaluates the corruption perception of the country from its own population as well as of foreigners), and the Freedom Ranking Index (based on political and civil rights of individuals within a country). Many westerners take freedom for granted, but most countries in the world are not totally free. For example, freedom is the one the main reasons for relocation from the Middle East. The quality of infrastructure is not the first thing one usually verifies prior to immigrating, but it is present in every Quality of Life Index and is a key factor in conducting business and enabling economic development. English language can also be an important factor when deciding to relocate to a particular city. Many cities have a population with high English proficiency, and you can get by as a tourist, but it becomes significantly harder when dealing with the government if you do not understand the official language. The Wellbeing Index measures the state of the balance between work and leisure.
