Standard of living

The financial health of a population, as measured by the quantity of consumption by the members of that population. The measure most frequently used to estimate 

Standard of living

 is gross national income per capita. One 

Drawback

 to the 

Standard of living

 measurement is that it does not take into 

Account

 some factors which are important but hard to quantify, such as crime rate or environmental impact.
