A new study from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) not only compares country differences in residents’ well-being, it also breaks down those differences by regions, giving a chance to look at just how Denmark’s five regions compare in a variety of categories.
The OECD Regional Well-Being study looked at regions in 34 of the world’s richest countries, rating them on nine factors: income, jobs, health, access to services, environment, education, safety, civic engagement and housing.
As a country, Denmark ranked quite high in the majority of the OECD’s categories, making it into the top five in access to services, civic engagement, housing and safety. But how do the nation’s regions stack up against each other?
With an average score across the nine categories of 7.72, the Central Denmark Region came out on top, but let’s take a look at the breakdown.
