INTRODUCTIONThis site ranks all the independent countries according to their living standard. The rank considers standard data such as political, economical, health and social situation, incomes, expectancy life, number of doctors, nurses, records of crime,etc. The site World Rank has been created with my personal opinion about the living standard of the independent countries. The site is updated every time there is a situation which changes the standard of life of a particular country, making it better or worse to live in than others. The situation can be: a civil war, a coup, a heavy flood, a strong drought, a strong economical crisis due to a bad economical situation, or the opposite: a strong growth, etc. The update will be made as soon as the situation will affect the living standard of the population. For example, when there is a devaluation of a particular currency the population feels the bad effects of it late, not at the moment of the devaluation. The + and the - indicate an improvement or a worsening in the living standard.
