SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES
The arrangements and choice of opportunities that the administration makes for education, health care and other essential community facilities for its citizens is relevant to evaluate the level of development. It is an essential responsibility of the administration to provide opportunities for the basic requirements of its inhabitants and not leave these to undefined national agencies. Much progress has undoubtedly been achieved, between 1980 and 1999, malnutrition was reduced and the proportion of underweight children in the underdeveloped world fell by 10% to 27%. Between 1970 and 1999, in the rural areas of the developing world, the percentage of people with access to safe water increased four fold to 71% but severe deprivations remain worldwide. 1.2 billion people still live on less than a dollar a day and 2.4 billion people lack sanitation facilities.
