Abstract

Sustainability is the key to finding solutions to problems facing the Earth such as insufficient access to food, environmental degradation, declining natural resources, vanishing forests and deteriorating communities. Sustainable development is a common challenge for the global community, which has become a widely recognised goal for human society. This paper compares the sustainability of USA with other 20 countries. The mathematical comparison was completed using a statistical and simulation model to compare and analyse the five categories across each country.
