It is used to distinguish whether the country is a developed , a developing or an underdeveloped country. With a comprehensive statistical annex, our data gives an overview of the state of development across the world, looking at long-term trends in human development indicators across multiple dimensions and for every nation, the Update highlights the considerable progress, but also the persistent deprivations and disparities. It does not reflect on inequalities, poverty, human security, empowerment, etc. Data came from Statistical Tables: Table 3, Table 3 for data. Instructions for importing data from the HDR This document explains the process undertaken to update four series in the Human Development series. This suggests a discontinuation of the series as some of its effects are captured in the gender inequality index and the inequality-adjusted index of the HDI.
The average HDI of regions of the world and groups of countries are also included for comparison.
The HDI is the geometric mean of normalized indices for each of the three dimensions. The HDI simplifies and captures only part of what human development entails.
Data also came from HDR report of in the annex tables for data. The HDRO offers the other composite indices as broader proxy on some of the key issues of human development, inequality, gender disparity and poverty. A child born today in Norway, the country with the highest HDI, can expect to live beyond 82 years old and spend almost 18 years in school. The indices for and were still both published in the following Human Development Report.
Latin America and the Caribbean follows with 62 per 1, live births.
In the Report, the Sultanate of Oman was reported to be the most improved country in the past 40 years out of the countries assessed the report reported on improvement in the period The indices for and were still both published in the following Human Development Report. The UN report covers member states of the United Nations out of , along with Hong Kong and Palestine ; 7 UN member states are not included because of lack of data. Refer to Technical notes for more details.
A merged table was then created Importing file. All three steepest declines in human development ranking were countries in conflict: the Syrian Arab Republic had the largest decrease in HDI rank, falling 27 places, followed by Libya 26 places , and Yemen 20 places. The original "high human development" category has been split into two as above in the report for The latest index — covering countries — was launched on 14 September The Gender Development Index GDI : The index measures gender inequalities in achievement in three basic dimensions of human development: health, measured by female and male life expectancy at birth; education, measured by female and male expected years of schooling for children and female and male mean years of schooling for adults ages 25 and older; and command over economic resources, measured by female and male estimated earned income.
The tables used were as listed below: Table 6 statistical tables and table 7 6 A Statistical tables and Table 6 Data was gathered from four tables then sorted sorting sheet. An Excel sheet was downloaded from the site and a simple import carried out Data came from Statistical Tables: Table 3, Table 3 for data. Instructions for importing data from the HDR This document explains the process undertaken to update four series in the Human Development series.
It ranges between 0, where women and men fare equally, and 1, where one gender fares as poorly as possible in all measured dimensions. High adolescent birth rates, early motherhood, and poor and unequal access to pre- and post-natal health services result in a high maternal mortality ratio. The most recent data points for were adopted during the blending process. Disparities between and within countries continue to stifle progress Average HDI levels have risen significantly since — 22 percent globally and 51 percent in least developed countries — reflecting that on average people are living longer, are more educated and have greater income. Global labor force participation rates for women are lower than for men — 49 percent versus 75 percent.
The HDRO offers the other composite indices as broader proxy on some of the key issues of human development, inequality, gender disparity and poverty.
