Despite the never-ending stream of TV shows glorifying teen life in America, kids in the U.S. don’t have it the best, according to a new study.
In fact, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and the International Youth Foundation, said this week that Australia scored the highest on the “Global Youth Wellbeing Index” released this week.
The study vetted 30 countries in total and is based on a smattering of indicators including economic opportunity for youth and access to education, health, information and communications, safety and security.
Here are the top 5 rankings:
- South Korea
- United Kingdom
The United States came in at no. 6, followed by Japan, Spain, Saudi Arabia and Thailand.
The bottom five countries were India followed by four African nations: Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Nigeria.
