Japan is ranked sixth in the world in terms of the quality of life for its children, according to the results of a survey conducted by UNICEF and Japan's National Institute for Population and Social Security Research.
The survey, which covered 31 countries, focused on health, education and the living environment for children.
According to the survey, the top countries were the Netherlands, then Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Japan ranked number one for education and wealth, strict yet effective systems, and safety, but for economic disparity and natural wealth, Japan fell to number 21.
This is the first time Japan has been included in this particular survey focusing on the happiness of children across the globe.© Japan Today
