According to a Kuwait-based think-tank, “CSRGulf”, Qatar makes it to the top among Arab countries in the assessment index on quality of life of citizens.

Qatar moves on to its’ second consecutive year to top the 20-list survey, along with the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, who have appeared as top-three. On the other hand, Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia emerged in the top ten.

This year’s classification took into account over 15 factors and sub-factors as per the index. 

The survey reflected the retort of the COVID-19 pandemic, thereby assessing the security threats index given by the Global Peace Index, climate hazards, and pollution. Among other factors, include human development, education, the efficiency of distance education, social integration, social progress, freedom, democracy, crime and anti-corruption measures, and unemployment. 

The Safest Arab Countries 2021-2022 survey reported the Gulf countries ranking first. The political, institutional and financial constancy is responsible for maintaining the stability that the Gulf enjoys. This further enhances the nations’ unceasing well-being in its educational, social, occupational, healthcare, and security fronts despite the challenges brought forth by the ongoing pandemic that the world faces.

The report stated that the likely escalation between Iran and the United States won’t have any consequences over the Gulf nations. It further declared that Iran and the Gulf will sustain peaceful relations.

A significant advancement was noted among the Gulf countries compared to other Arab countries according to the survey. Indicators like prosperity, human development, social improvement, vaccination, employment status, individual income, and combating corruption were high in the Gulf. However, environmental challenges, pollution, and democratic values still show a setback for the region. 

Due to the reduced risks of internal political inconstancy, most Gulf countries have achieved a stable future outlook, in addition to the steady availability of measures taken to rally financial resources to shield any deficit this year, especially with the insecurity of the future of oil prices as per the survey.
