Social Development Indicators - Measuring Human Well-being

Project name/title
Social Development Indicators - Measuring Human Well-being
Year:
2002
Theme:
Poverty, Inequality and Well-being
Abstract:
Summary measures of human well-being are increasingly used to compare and monitor performance within and across countries. The UNDP's Human Development Index (HDI) is one of a number of measures which have done much to refocus attention on the importance of non-monetary measures of human progress. This project aims to provide guidelines for the future design and practical application of human well-being indicators by taking stock of and reviewing current practice. This project builds on previous UNU-WIDER research which emphasized the importance of achieving broad-based recovery from conflict.
