Out of the U. S. , Japan, and China, I think Japan has the best standard of living. The first reason is their health.

Life expectancy is how long the people of that country live, or the quality of their health. In Japan, females live to be 83. 45, and males live to be 77. 13. In the United States, females live to be 79. 75, and males live to be 73.

04. In China, females live to be 71. 9, and males live to be 68. 82. Another important factor in health is number of hospital beds.

The number of hospital beds is the access to health care for serious problems. In first again Japan has one hospital bed for every 74 people. In the China, there is one hospital bed for every 242 people. In the United States, there is one hospital bed for every 243 people.

The last thing that proves Japan has the best health is infant mortality rate. This indicates better quality of pre-natal and post-natal care. In Japan 4. 05 out of 1000 babies die before their first birthday.

In the U. S. , 6. 67 out of 1000 babies die before their first birthday. In China, very sadly, 41. 14 out of 1000 babies die before their first birthday.

Another indicator that a county has a better standard of liv in is a population growth indicator. Population growth determines if a country needs to do something about its population. Population growth rate is how fast a country's population. Japan has a population grow ht rate of. 181%, which is very good. The U.

S. has a population growth rate of. 55%. And China has a population growth rate of. 939%.

Another part of population growth indicators is what percent of the population is under 15. Japan is at 14. 8%, the U. S. is at 21. 2%, and China is at 25.

4%. Another indicator of standard of living is access to adequate diet. This is the same thing as infant mortality rate. Japan is 41. 14 out of 1000, the U. S.

is at 6. 67 out of 1000, and China is at 4. 05 out of 1000. Another thing that proves Japan has a better standard of living is education. Years of compulsory education is how many years a person is required to go to school. Japan requires 10 years.

China and the U. S. require 9 years. Literacy rate is what percent of the population has access to knowledge so they can to basic reading, math, and reading.

Japan is perfect at 100%. The U. S. is almost perfect at 97%. China is at 82%. The last thing that proves Japan has a better standard of living is communication.

This tells us how much of the population has access to information. Newspaper circulation is a nations access to the newspaper. Japan has 578 for every 1000 people. The U. S. has 215 for 1000 people.

China has 23 for 1000 people. As you can see, Japan has the best standard of living out of China, the U. S. , and Japan.
