N.B: The figures in the brackets are international postions.

N.B: Human Development
Index (HDI) was created to emphasize that people and their capabilities should be the ultimate criteria for assessing the development of a country, not economic growth alone.

The HDI can also be used to question national policy choices, asking how two countries with the same level of GNI per capita can end up with
different human development outcomes.

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a summary measure of average
achievement in key dimensions of
human development: a long and healthy life, being knowledgeable and have a decent standard of living. The HDI is the geometric mean of normalized indices for each of the three dimensions.

The health dimension is assessed by life expectancy at birth, the education dimension is measured by mean of
years of schooling for adults aged 25 years and more and expected years of
schooling for children of school entering age.

The standard of living dimension is
measured by gross national income per capita.
