According to a survey conducted by  Social Progress Imperative, a US-based non-profit organization set up in 2012, India ranks 101 among the 133 countries measured for their social progress.

India is even below some of its  immediate neighbors such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

The index is seen as a measure of relationship between income inequality and social progress by using the commonly deployed Gini coefficient on income inequality.

The countries are judged on parameters of  health, water and sanitation, personal safety, access to opportunity, tolerance, inclusion, personal freedom and choice.

“If the world were a country, it would score 64.39 out of 100 on the Social Progress Index based on a simple average of countries and 61.00 on a population-weighted basis,” the organization said in the latest report.

India’s score of 53.06 is even below that.

On the parameter of “Tolerance and inclusion”, which according to the American NGO is the most difficult parameter, India fares even worse with a rank of 128.

On “health and wellness”, India is at the 120th place, where the US ranks 68th.
