    • HUMAN DEVELOPMENT INDEX GROUP NO 08
      • The Human Development Index
      • ( HDI ) is a composite statistic used to rank countries by level of "human development" and separate developed(high development) , developing (middle development) and under developed (low development) countries.
    • SUB INDICES
              • Life expectancy
              • Literacy
              • Per-capita GDP (Standard of living)
    • Origins of the HDI
      • The origins of the HDI are to be found in the United Nations Development Programme's (UNDP) Human Development Reports (HDRs).
      • These were devised and launched by a group of economists in 1990 and had the explicit purpose: ‘‘to shift the focus of development economics from national income accounting to people centered policies’’.
      • In here they discussed that human development was needed in order to convince the public, academics, and policy-makers that they can and should evaluate development not only by economic advances but also improvements in human well-being.
    • Methodology of Calculating HDI
      • The formula defining the HDI is promulgated by the United Nations Development Programme.
      • In general, to transform a raw variable, say x , into a unit-free index between 0 and 1.
      • There are 2 methods of calculating HDI,old & new.
      • Where and are the lowest and highest values the variable x can attain, respectively.
      • The Human Development Index (HDI) then represents the uniformly weighted sum with ⅓ contributed by each of the following factor indices:
    •  
    •  
    • The New Method
      • In its 2010 Human Development Report the UNDP began using a new method of calculating the HDI. The following three indices are used:
      • Life Expectancy Index (LEI) =LE-20/(83.2-20)
      • Income Index (EI)=
      • { In(GNIpc )- In(163)} /{In(108,211)-In(163)}
      • Education Index
      • Mean Years of Schooling Index (MYSI)=
      • MYS-0/13.2-0
      • Expected Years of Schooling Index (EYSI) =
      • EYS-0/20.6-0
      • HDI is the geometric mean of the previous three normalized indices.
      • HDI=
