SLOVENIA, AT THE 21ST POSITION IN THE INDEX OF SOCIAL PROGRESS
Slovenia ranked 21st among 128 countries in the Social Progress Index, calculated by the American NGO Social Progress Imperative, in collaboration with Deloitte; last year it occupied the 20th place among 133 countries.
Ljubljana maintains the primacy of Central Eastern Europe, with the best results recorded in the field of basic human needs (access to food, water, sanitation and health care). However, the rate of suicide remains high. The worst result was achieved in the “Opportunity” category, which includes, inter alia, tolerance and inclusion. In measuring the quality of life, the social progress index mainly uses non-financial parameters.
