Little progress on poverty

The United Nations Development Program issued its 2005 Human Development Report last week. The report provides a comprehensive statistical analysis of poverty and human development across the globe. El Salvador, like its neighbors Guatemala, Nicaragua and Honduras, does not fare well in the rankings. El Salvador is ranked 104th among world nations on the UN Human Development Index, towards the bottom of countries ranked as having "medium human development."
