What's the best country in which to be a mother?

The U.S.-based global humanitarian organization Save the Children ranks Scandinavian countries the best and puts sub-Saharan African countries at the bottom of the list.

The United States ties for tenth with the United Kingdom.

The rankings are part of Save the Children's "State of the World's Mothers 2006," which evaluates the status of mothers and children in 125 countries. The ratings are based on ten indicators pertaining to health and education.

The report also says that 2 million children die each year during the first 24 hours of life, making the first day the most dangerous day of their lives. Among indicators that deal with children's well-being, Somalia is last.
