Bangladesh has been placed ahead of neighbouring India and Pakistan in the World Prosperity Index, in consideration of “joy of everyday life,” and “the prospect of being able to build an even better life in the future.”

In the `Prosperity Index` ranking of 142 countries compiled by London-based Legatum Institute, Bangladesh has placed in 103 position while Norway continues to remain at the top.

The 2013 Legatum Prosperity Index evaluates nations in eight categories, including education, health, economy, safety and security.

India dropped from 101st position and slipped by five places to 106th spot, way below Bangladesh (103), Nepal (102), Sri Lanka (60) and China (51).

At the top of the index, Norway defended its numero uno position for the fifth year. Switzerland is at second place, followed by Canada at third, Sweden at fourth and New Zealand at fifth.

Moreover, the country ranked low on health ground (109 in the index), entrepreneurship and opportunity (104) and education (97).

Meanwhile, on the lower end of the rankings Chad stood at 142, Central African Republic (141), Congo (140), Afghanistan (139), Pakistan (132) and Iraq (130).

The top ten countries in the Index are Norway, Switzerland, Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, Denmark, Australia, Finland, Netherlands and Luxembourg.
