passes

In this article we present the HDI ranking corresponding to the report published by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in 2018.

Along with the publication of this ranking, we have also published additional content. A calculator for the HDI and a guide on the methodology and a calculation example.

HDI calculation and interpretation guide

HDI calculator

Although we explain it in our guide, it should be noted that the HDI is not a perfect indicator. Despite the fact that its calculations are very limited, it presents a not inconsiderable long-term evolution framework.

In other words, it may have short-term failures, but those countries that register high growth in this indicator give us signs that something is improving in their countries. This does not mean that everything is ideal, no.

All countries, even Norway, which is the country with the highest HDI, has room for improvement. Obviously, they have a lot of land gained and are very advanced in terms of health, education and income. Of course, make no mistake, they are very advanced because there are other metrics in addition to the HDI that also mark good records.

Without further ado, we present the data from the latest UNDP report published in 2018 on the HDI of all countries for the year 2017.
