AIR POLLUTION (1) Health of a population contributes greatly to their human well being. The percentage of the population exposed to a high level of air pollution exceeding WHO, World Health Organisation, guidelines is a specific and significant measure of an individual's well being, especially their health. This quantitative data is useful and very reliable as is it sourced from the World Bank Organisation.

Indicators from The World Bank: Data

AIR POLLUTION (2) The World Bank is an international company that provides data and statistics on various factors regarding human well being around the world. In Norway, just 8.78% of the population is exposed to extensive air pollution. Being a developed country, this number is quite low compared to other countries in which their greatest source of income as a nation comes from an industry that requires greenhouse and other gas emissions.

VOC is an acronym for “Volatile Organic Compound”. They are organic chemicals that, at room temperature, have high vapor pressure…which means what, exactly? Click picture to find out more!

AIR POLLUTION (3) This is the case in Nigeria. The entire population is exposed to an exceeding amount of air pollution. As oil is one of their main exports and sources of income, the entire population’s health is greatly affected.

HPI (1) The Happy Planet Index is a fairly useful qualitative measure of the efficiency of residents in a country in their ability to live long, happy lives whilst remaining ecologically sustainable. The source ranks Norway in 12th place with a score of 36.8 and Nigeria at 95th with a score of 22.2, inferring that Norway is approximately 166% better off than Nigeria. While this is accurate data, the rankings can be misunderstood if the fact that 56 countries are missing from the ranking…

HPI (2) These 56 countries could all be between Norway and Nigeria, making their current gap seem much larger. The formula used to calculate the HPI considers the well being (through a 1-10 rating), life expectancy, the inequality of outcomes within a country & their ecological footprint, making them the factors influencing the difference between the two countries scores.

HPI (3)  (Read why figures can differ from country to country in other sections. Well being in life satisfaction, life expectancy in life expectancy & inequality outcomes in life satisfaction-standard deviation) Ecological footprints can vary throughout the world due to overpopulation, urbanisation & government priorities.

HPI For example, Norway was one of the highest per capita polluters in the world. However, they highly valued ecological sustainability & set an goal to become carbon neutral by causing a vast improvement in their carbon footprint.

HPI (4) For example, Norway was one of the highest per capita polluters in the world. However, they highly valued ecological sustainability & set an goal to become carbon neutral by 2030, causing a vast improvement in their carbon footprint.
