Human Development Index

The UN maintains a "human development index" that combines indicators such as health, education, literacy, housing, absence of hunger, etc. France does pretty well: it stands near the top, and its improvement more or less parallels that of the US (two broad blue lines in the graph). The broad green line is China. Most of the red lines are in Africa. For much more, see this site.
