Israel ranked 25th in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s 2012 Better Life Index, which measured the 34 member states plus Russia and Brazil on material living conditions and quality of life.

The OECD published the results of this year’s survey late Tuesday, ranking the countries in 11 categories: housing, income, jobs, community, education, environment, civic engagement, health, life satisfaction, safety and work/life balance.

Australia, Norway and the United States occupied the index’s top three spots, while Turkey finished last behind Mexico and Chile. Israel was ranked just behind South Korea, but narrowly beat the Slovak Republic, Poland, Greece and Portugal.
