This new publication provides a more complete view of the recent history and current state of development throughout the world than does the United Nations' often-quoted Human Development Index.

The Fraser Institute's Index of Human Progress ranks the United States first, Switzerland second, Luxembourg third, Denmark fourth, and Japan fifth. Canada ranked sixteenth in 1999 out of 128 countries. Canada's score on the Index of Human Progress improved from 73.2 in 1975 to 94.0 in 1999 (a 28.5 percent increase); the score of the United States improved from 81.4 in 1975 to 105.8 in 1999 (a 30.1 percent increase). ...

The United States was ranked second for 1975 through 1990 and first for 1995 and 1999. Canada ranked sixth in 1975, tenth in 1980, eighth in 1985, seventh in 1990, eleventh in 1995 and sixteenth in 1999. ...
