UK underperforms in worldwide well-being study


THE UK failed to make it into the top five in the new SEDA report (Sustainable Economic Development Assessment), a worldwide study of well-being levels. According to the report, Poland is outperforming the UK when it comes to education. The Eastern European country is also the world leader when it comes to converting economic growth into the well-being of its citizens.
Having reformed its schooling system in 2009, when compulsory education between the ages of six and 18 was introduced, as well as legal entitlement to a year of pre-school, Poland has achieved a score of 90 (out of a total score of 100) under the report’s criteria.
Although its overall well-being score of 71.6 was, in fact, lower than Britain’s at 81.1, Poland also outdid the UK in the area of health on the SEDA score.
When compared to other economies, Poland did fall short when it came to infrastructure.
