  • We present details of the analysis of the nonlinear quality of life index for 171 countries. [...] Key Method The order along this principal curve gives us the ranking of countries. Projection onto the principal curve provides a solution to the classical problem of unsupervised ranking of objects. It allows us to find the independent on expert's opinion way to project several numerical indicators from a multidimensional space onto the one-dimensional space of the index values. This projection is, in some sense…Expand Abstract
