Qatar, which scored exceptionally well in Numbeo’s Quality of Life Index in 2023, maintained its hold as one of the best countries in the region in January.

According to the January 2024 rankings, Qatar has 170.96 points on the index (169.77 in December 2023), which is significantly higher than other GCC nations.

While Oman topped regional nations with 185.60 points, the UAE had the third-best score (162.12) in the index. Saudi Arabia (154.80), Bahrain (147.59) and Kuwait (136.93) followed in that order.

Qatar scored ‘very high’ in the Purchasing Power Index (131.13pts) and Safety Index (84.12). Qatar had a ‘high’ rating in the Health Care Index (73.13).

The country’s places on the Climate Index (36.03) and Pollution Index (59.37) were classified as ‘moderate.’

Cost of Living Index (54.18), Property Price to Income Ratio (5.19), and Traffic Commute Time Index (29.26) were all classified as ‘low.’

Numbeo is the world’s largest cost of living database. It is also a crowd-sourced global database of quality of life data, housing indicators, perceived crime rates, healthcare quality, transport quality, and other statistics.

Qatar has been selected as the ‘Safest Country’ in the world five years in a row since 2017, according to the Numbeo Crime Index by Country. Doha has also been ranked as one of the world’s safest cities.

Qatar was also ranked among top 20 countries in Numbeo Healthcare Index by Country 2021, scoring 73 points.

In February 2023, five Qatari hospitals were ranked among the world’s top 250 academic medical centres, according to a new study undertaken by Brand Finance, a UK-based brand valuation consultancy.

In 2022, Qatar ranked first in the Arab world and 18th worldwide in the 2022 Health Care Index.

In 2022, the Global Peace Index ranked Qatar as the most peaceful country in the Middle East and North Africa region. Out of 163 countries, Qatar ranked the 23rd most peaceful country in the world.

Doha had also been chosen as the 27th Best City in the world to live, work, visit, and invest in by Resonance Consultancy — a leading global advisor on placemaking, branding and marketing for the world’s best cities and destinations.

Earlier this year, Qatar jumped three spots to improve its global ranking to 21 in Kearney’s 2023 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index. Thanks to the 2022 FIFA World Cup boosting investor interest, the country also finished second in the regional table.

According to Transparency International’s 2022 Corruption Perceptions Index, Qatar scored 58 points out of a possible 100 to rank as the 40th least corrupt nation in the world. It also maintained its position as the second least corrupt Arab nation on the index behind the UAE.
