USA Not #1 in Health, Family, Income and More: Ranks #29 Among 30 Countries

When someone tells you the United States is the best country in the world to live, ask them on what grounds or with what data do they make this claim. They would not make such a statement if they had all the facts marshalled in the ebook-report summarized in this article. The author looks at, according to Paul Rosenberg, “eight indicators each in seven categories, ranking counties in order along with precise figures for how they score. The seven categories are: health, family, education, income and leisure, freedom and democracy, public order and safety, and generosity. Indicators include things like life expectancy at birth, infant mortality rate, share of income received by richest 10 per cent, years of life lost in injury, etc.”
