Best Answer

Libya(56) has the highest rating for an African nation on the Human Development Index and is the only African nation ranked in the "High" category. Next would be Tunisia(91), Algeria(104), Egypt (112) and Sudan (178)

These exclude the island nations of Seychelles(50) and Mauritius(65).

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a comparative measure of life expectancy, literacy, education, and standards of living for countries worldwide. It is a standard means of measuring well-being, especially child welfare. It is used to distinguish whether the country is a developed, a developing, or an under-developed country, and also to measure the impact of economic policies on quality of life.

What best explains why England had the best standards of living in the world in 1990?

First, it is not clear that England did have the highest standard of living; this sounds like something that came from a British textbook, and while there certainly may be some truth in it, other countries like Canada, the United States, and Sweden might say their standard of living was equally high. Among the reasons why a country has a high standard of living are a strong economy, a good education system, healthy citizens, social mobility, and leadership that keeps the country feeling unified. As much as England has managed to achieve, it is not the only country to have these things.

Is Sweden's standard of living low?
