  • Actual value – Minimum value/Maximum value – Minimum value
  • HDI is Geometric mean of 3 dimension indices =  Ilife1/3 * I education 1/3* Iincome1/3

 According to HDI countries are divided –

  • The UNDP classifies each country into one of three development groups:
  • Ranges from 0-1
  1. Low human development for HDI scores between 0.0 and 0.5,
  2. Medium human development for HDI scores between 0.5 and 0.8
  3. High human development for HDI scores between 0.8 and 1.0.
  •  As for the year 2016, HDI for India stood at 0.624.
