I have a lot of Norwegian friends. They have it pretty good up there. From what I recall one of my male friends got a good amount of paid paternal leave when his wife had their children. She had I think at least a year of paid maternity leave and her job garunteed to be waiting for her when she came back. Not to mention daycare. Talk about family values.

Looks like Mali hasn't moved on the list. It was 5th from the bottom when I lived there and still is. I'm a little surprised that Burkina Faso ranks below Mali. For some reason, when I visited it seemed to be a little ahead of Mali in terms of development. But I guess it's all relative.

Also, countries not included in the list:

Korea, Dem. Rep. of
Marshall Islands
Micronesia, Fed. Sts.
San Marino
Also missing - Philadelphia.


And since the US can totally take out countries 1-11, we are technically #1. Sorry Norway! We win, AGAIN!

Honduras #115.

Can´t believe we were beat by Nicaragua, though.
