Living standards continue to diverge within many economically advanced countries as poorer regions struggle to catch up with richer ones. These charts display trends for the years 2000 to 2013 for a set of quality-of-life indicators. They compare the relative performance of advanced and lagging regions and provide the national average as a reference. Pass your mouse over the labels for detailed definitions on each indicator.
