Human Development Indices

The human development composite indices have been developed to capture broader dimensions of human development, identify groups falling behind in human progress and monitor the distribution of human development. In addition to the HDI, the indices include Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI), Inequality-adjusted Human Development Index (IHDI), Gender Inequality Index (GII), Gender Development Index (GDI), and the experimental Planetary pressures-adjusted HDI (PHDI) and Gender Social Norms Index (GSNI).After clicking on the link read through the different indices listed and select one. Once selected submit a paragraph in your own words (~300 words) discussing what the index is and what it measures. Further discuss why this index is beneficial and what it provides that others do not. Is the index you selected the best way to measure human development in your opinion? Your response should be well thought out. (Links to an external site.)
