UNICEF's new 'Report Card' ranks child well-being in 29 rich countries.
If you're from any of these countries, check out the ranking and tell them what you think about your country's performance.
As you might have suspected, how rich a country is does not result in better lives for children. Portugal and Slovenia, for example, score better than the UK and Canada. And the USA is close to the bottom, far behind Netherlands, Norway and Iceland - the top 3 performing countries.

It also provides liaison with institutions of the European Union in the field of information.
