Human Development Index


Human Development Index

The Human Development Index, established under the United Nations Development Programme, “emphasizes that people and their capabilities should be the ultimate criteria for assessing the development of a country, not economic growth alone.” This index may be used to assess policy choices and evaluate how two countries with comparable gross national income levels experience differing development outcomes.
