The United Nations Development Program regularly releases its Human Development Report. A closely watched finding of this report is the Human Development Index (HDI) which measures the overall achievements of a country in three basic dimensions of human development: life expectancy, educational attainment and adjusted income. Go to the Human Development Index (HDI) website to find all the report data and understand all the indices and answer the following questions: • How is HDI defined and computed? MAT205: Quantitative Explorations in Everyday Life • (b). What is the percent change in the United States’ indices from 1990 to 2015? • Locate the US indices for Education, Gender, Sustainability and Health. Compare the indices to a country whose indices are better than those of the U.S. and to a country whose indices are worse than those of the U.S.. All your answers should be in percentages.
