    Question What if you lived in THAT country instead of THIS country?



    Welcome to IfItWereMyHome.com

    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.

    You can also use our visualization tool to help understand the impact of a disaster. The Pakistan Flood and BP Oil Spill are currently featured. Check out the individual pages to gain some perspective on these awful tragedies.

    If you're not sure where to begin, try this week's featured country, Canada

    I checked that site against the three countries that I have lived in for more than four years each.

    I dont know what twisted stats that they used to come up with the "results," but they are misleading, often downright wrong, culturally insensative, and frankly insulting.

    Hehe. High entertainment value, though. Could have been written by Michael Moore: using twisted statistics to come to a factually incorrect, but entertaining conclusion.

    It looks like the sort of data compiled for government briefing books. You can find the same info (without the value system color coding) in the iPad app World Factbook.

    Probably from here:
