Korea was ranked the 17th best country to live in this year in a survey released by a U.S. nonprofit organization on Monday.
Social Progress Imperative compiles an annual index of social and environmental progress around the world.
Korea rose six spots from last year to 17th among 163 countries. Norway topped the list for the third year in a row, followed by Denmark and Finland. Japan ranked 13th, while China ranked 100th.
The index measures the countries' progress in three dimensions -- basic human needs like healthcare, foundations of wellbeing like accessibility to information, and opportunities such as higher education.
