Pictured above is the village of Reine, Norway. Norway was ranked by the United Nations as having the highest Human Development Index in 2015. The Central African Republic was ranked as having the lowest (#188), but some countries in which the standard of living is arguably lower such as Somalia and North Korea are not ranked. Where was the United States ranked, you ask? We were ranked #10, down 5 spaces from 2013. What data do you think is used to generate rankings? Why do you think the US was ranked lower in 2015 than in 2013?
