If you were born in another country...

I'm gonna let the site intro speak for the link:

The lottery of birth is responsible for much of who we are. If you were not born in the country you were, what would your life be like? Would you be the same person?

IfItWereMyHome.com is your gateway to understanding life outside your home. Use our country comparison tool to compare living conditions in your own country to those of another. Start by selecting a region to compare on the map to the right, and begin your exploration.

I have only compared my country to the US and according to it, if I lived in the US I would most likely be richer and employed.

I haven't checked the impact of disasters yet.

So I compared France to Canada:

If Canada were your home instead of France you would...

use 2.3 times more electricity
consume 2.2 times more oil
have 50.76 more chance of dying in infancy
work 16.95% more hours each year
spend 7.4% more money on health care

have 17.3% less babies

make 17.07% more money
have 12.37% more chance of being employed
experience 1.83% less class divide
live 0.2 years longer
Can I move there just before dying and still get that .2 yrs longer? :hmm:

Apparently the only worthwhile reason for me to move to the US is I'll make 32% more money. Oh, and have 29.62% more babies :lol: I like how that one is colored in blue instead of green or red cause they aren't sure if it's a good thing or not :hah:

If I move to Canada with you I'll also live longer... by just over 2 years. I suppose they don't take into account who lives there cause if we met Danny and Biz they'd drink us into an early grave for sure...

I noticed that too - the blue ones. It's very neutral.

So employment rate is higher in the UK? I thought it would be lower.

ps. true about bizzy and danny :lol:

Well, if I had to live in another country, it'd be the UK or France. For some reason, they just seem to be calling me. I guess its because my ancestors came from the UK and France 200 years ago.
