Map of The Human Development Index

The Human Development Index
The UN Human Develpment Index was designed to measure human development not only by economic advances, but also potential improvements in human well-being. In 2010, the HDI Report introduced an inequality-adjusted Human Development Index (IHDI) which measures the average level of human development of people in a society once inequality is taken into account.
