According to Gallup, 16% of Americans stated that they did not have enough money to buy needed food at some point within the past twelve months. That is enough to make the United States tied for twenty-seventh with Syria, Lithuania, and South Korea, out of one hundred thirteen countries ranked in that category. Singapore ranked first, with 2% of residents reporting not having enough money to buy needed food.
According to UNICEF, the United States has an under-5 mortality rate of 8 per 1,000 live births, which makes the United States tied for one-hundred-and-fifty-first in that category with Lithuania, Serbia, Slovakia, and the United Arab Emirates. Sierra Leone ranks first, with an under-5 mortality rate of 262 per 1,000 live births.
