The Human Development Index (HDI) is a summary measure of human development. It measures the average achievements in a country in three basic dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life, access to knowledge and a decent standard of living. The HDI is the geometric mean of normalized indices measuring achievements in each dimension.
For details on how index calculated, see latest UNDP Human Development Report, available from http://hdr.undp.org.
Note: In its 2010 Human Development Report the UNDP began using a new method of calculating the HDI. Old and new values are not comparable. In the July 2011 update of the HFA database, all historic values were replaced by values obtained using new methodology.
