US drops in global index measuring health, education and income
The United States has fallen dramatically down an international index which ranks the best countries in the world in which to live.
According to the UN's Human Development Report, the US remains the fourth best country globally, but once inequalities like wages and access to healthcare are factored in, it drops to 23rd place.
The annual report provides rankings of national achievement in health, education and income for 187 countries across the world.
