"They" do love to bombard us with statistics, don't they? The latest set that came to my attention this week is the Social Progress Index for 2015. Countries have been judged on their GDP (Gross Domestic Product) for decades but this isn't really a statistic that measures quality of life. The Social Progress Index looks to provide that by measuring health, education and personal safety. It looks at the statistics of nutrition, sanitation, water, access to education, communication and personal rights. Ready to take a look at the top 25 countries to see if you live in one of them?
If your country isn't here, pop on over to socialprogressimperative.org to see where it is on the table. This page also provides more info on how the countries were scored and ranked.
