21:11, 4 July 2016

This is stated in the Social Progress Imperative study, UNIAN reports.

The index was based on the evaluation of 53 different parameters including the level of development of health, education, access to housing, protection of the rights and tolerance. This year, as noted in the study, Ukraine has received an average score of 66.4 out of 100 possible. However, the study does not result in the comparative index data for previous years.

"Despite the social, political and economic difficulties, Ukraine is ahead of all CIS countries at the level of the index of social development. Thus, Belarus took the 66th place, Armenia is on the 67th, and Russia is 75th. Ukraine traditionally shows a relatively strong performance in the field of access to higher education and to basic knowledge".

At the same time in areas such as corruption, crime rate, affordable housing, the environment, health and longevity, as well as the freedom to choose one’s way of life Ukraine showed very poor results.

Finland is the leader of the index. Canada and Denmark took second and third places respectively. The top ten also includes Australia, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Iceland. The EU countries and the US formed the second ten.

The two largest economic leaders in the world after the United States - China and India - have occupied 84th and 98th positions.
