Human development index
The HDI is a measure of development using an index which includes three main sections (called dimensions) with separate indicators feeding into three separate indices, which are equally weighted in the final HDI index:
A long and health life
Life expectancy at birth
Which helps create the life expectancy index
Expected years in schooling
Mean years in schooling
Which creates an education index
A decent standard of living;
Gross national income (GNI) per capita
Which gives the GNI index
The final HDI index ranges from 0 – 1.
