GLRPPR Sector Resource: Social Development Indicators Factsheet

Title:
Social Development Indicators Factsheet

Abstract:
Standards of living are difficult to measure, but indicators of social development are available. A basic measure, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita, is the value of all goods and services produced within a region over a given time period, averaged per person. A more advanced metric, the Human Development Index (HDI), considers life expectancy, education, and GDP. The three highest HDI-ranked countries in the world are Norway, Australia, and Switzerland. Many of the indicators discussed below are used to measure progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDG), a set of targets agreed upon by United Nations member states as crucial for global human progress.
