Japan ranked sixth among 31 industrialized countries in a survey on children’s well-being released Wednesday by the U.N. Children’s Fund and a Japanese institute.

The survey measured development according to five dimensions of children’s lives: material well-being, health and safety, education, behavior and risks, and housing and environment. Japan’s National Institute of Population and Social Security Research jointly conducted the research with UNICEF.
