The Progress of Nations: The Nations of the World Ranked Acording to Their Achievements in Health, Nutrition, Education, Family Planning, and Progress for Women.
Adamson, Peter, Ed.
This report documents the progress made in developing and developed nations to improve health, nutrition, education, family planning, and the condition of women over the last 40 years. It presents tables that rank the world's nations and regions on: (1) the mortality rate of children under 5 years of age; (2) the percent of children under 5 years of age who are malnourished; (3) the percent of children immunized against measles; (4) the percent of children reaching grade 5 in school; (5) the average number of births per woman; and (6) the mortality rate of women due to childbirth complications. The report provides statistics on national performance gaps, the difference of the level of progress achieved and the expected level of progress for each country's gross national product. It also examines the progress made by the world's nations to ratify and implement health, nutrition, and education goals contained in the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child. (MDM)
