The index tallies the best countries for children based on three factors that impact a large part of kids’ growth: health, education and nutrition. The nongovernmental organization ranks countries based on the chances of a child dying before his or her fifth birthday, of not enrolling in school and of being underweight — the lower the chance of one of those measures occurring, the lower the nation’s composite index score is. The most child-friendly nations notch the lowest scores. (Time Magazine)
