    I think the measure of a country lies in its treatment of its citizens in the lowest and most abject conditions. By this measure, America has always struggled.

    What do rankings really prove? Who compiles the rankings?

    It depends upon what is being measured, but for example with education the most commonly cited source I see is the Education Index in which the UN compiles information from all over the world. As for "what the rankings prove," again it depends upon what is being ranked and how the information is assessed. To use the Education Index example, things like literacy rates and enrollment rates are considered.

    As for what they prove, that as they say is an exercise to be left to the reader.
