Composite indices: Human Development Index

  • composite indices describe a complex characteristic of a society in one single number

  • E.g.: Human Development Index, HDI

  • measured by a UN research team

  • uses a resource based approach

    • studying actual circumstances of individuals would partly be about preferences, so the actual status of a society is better described by its resources

Calculating HDI: income

1. the relative value of per capita real GDP: (W(a), GDP PPP)

(theoretical range (amax - amin): 163-108 211 Mo. 2010: 17 472 USD)

11.1. egyenlet -


where a stands for the real per capita GDP of the given country

Calculating HDI: life expectancy

2. the relative value of at birth life expectancy (W(b))

(theoretical range (bmin - bmax): 20-83,2 Mo. 2010:73,9)

11.2. egyenlet -


where b stands for the at birth life expectancy in the given country

Calculating HDI: education

3. the relative value of the exponential value of the relative proportion of the following: the relative proportion of the schooling years of adults (Hungary, 2010 : 11,7) (max-min: 13,2-0), (A(c)) and the relative proportion of the expected schooling years of children (Hungary, 2010: 15,3) (max-min: 20,6-0) (G(d)) (education index (E(c,d)).
