Bad to the Bone: US among worst places for children

This shouldn't become as surprise: Hungary, Britain and the United States are the worst places in the industrialized world for children to live, according to a report by the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef).

Child well-being is at its highest in the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Finland. There is no strong or consistent relationship between per capita GDP and child well-being. The Czech Republic, for example, achieves a higher overall rank for child well-being than several much wealthier European countries including France and Austria.

The six dimensions were taken to measure the well- being of children – material well-being, health and safety, education, peer and family relationships, behaviours and risks, and young people’s own subjective sense of well-being.
