The U.S. ranks 3rd in human development

According to the United Nations’ 2011 Human Development Index, the United States has a human development score of 0.910, which makes the United States tied for third with Netherlands in that category. Norway ranks first, with a human development score of 0.943.

The indicators that the United Nations considers when building its index are health, education, and income.

    This is interesting to see laid out on a chart! Health, education and income are so interconnected in our development that I feel like this should give us a pretty good gauge as to how we are progressing compared to other countries. I wonder what Norway is doing that we aren’t?
