Ranking Countries by Human Development Index. The Human Development Index (HDI) uses life expectancy, education, and per capita income indicators to construct a composite statistic used to rank countries into four tiers of human development. The HDI index helps us to recognize whether an economy is advanced or underdeveloped. A country scores a higher Human Development Index or HDI when the lifespan is higher, the education level is higher, and the GDP per capita is higher. The general purpose of the HDI is to help nations and policy makers shift the focus of economic welfare from using national income accounting to using people-centered policies for life expectancy, education and income growth.
