Best Answer

No the United States of America is not a Least Developed Country (LEDC). The United States is currently classified as a developed country by the United Nations and is considered to have a high Human Development Index (HDI). According to the UN LEDCs are countries with a low Human Development Index indicating that the country faces challenges in terms of poverty health and access to education. The UN has identified the following criteria for a country to be classified as an LEDC:

  • A low Human Development Index
  • Low income
  • High economic vulnerability
  • Low levels of human assets

The United States does not meet any of these criteria and is thus classified as a developed country by the UN.
