To identify the healthiest countries in the world, Bloomberg Rankings created health scores and health-risk scores for countries with populations of at least one million.

Israel ranked sixth with a health grade of 85.97 percent; a total health score of 91.97% and a health risk penalty of 6.00%.

Compare that to the US, which scored 33rd overall with a health grade of 66.84%; a total health score of 72.96% and a health risk penalty of 6.12%.

The world’s healthiest country, according to the report, is Singapore followed by Italy, Australia, Switzerland, Japan and then Israel.

To calculate the rankings, Bloomberg subtracted the risk score from the health score to determine the country’s rank.
