The Organization of the United Nations published in recent days the ranking of countries according to the Human Development Index.
This report is presented every year and examines the progress or retreat of almost 200 nations following numerous criteria.
The human development index is calculated by measuring the progress of a country in three basic dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life expectancy, access to education and a decent standard of living.
The ten countries that lead the ranking of human development index in this 2018 are Norway, Switzerland, Australia, Ireland, Germany, Iceland, Hong Kong, Sweden, Singapore and the Netherlands.
Meanwhile, the last ten places on the list are African countries: Eritrea, Mozambique, Liberia, Mali, Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone, Burundi, Chad, South Sudan, Central African Republic and Niger.
The countries that have fallen more in the list this year are Syria, going back 27 places; Libya, which lost 26 places; Yemen, which collapsed 20 seats; and Venezuela that lost 16 places.
