International: New Report Ranks Easiest and Hardest Places to Be a Kid
Smithsonian – June 13, 2017
Using data from the United Nations and governmental sources, Save the Children ranked 172 countries based on the prevalence of eight “childhood enders,” or factors that negatively impact a child’s wellbeing: child mortality rates, incidence of stunted growth (an indicator of severe malnourishment), the percentage of children who do not attend school, the percentage of children who are engaged in labor, adolescent marriage rates, adolescent birth rates, the percentage of the population displaced by conflict, and child homicide rates.
