The three key dimensions are: 1. Here is the Our World in Data entry on life expectancy. Here are our entries on Literacy and the Global Rise of Education. The differences across the world are very large, ranging from the highest values in North America, Europe, Japan, and Oceania to the lowest in central Africa. As always on Our World in Data, you can add any other country to the chart.
The HDI was created to emphasize that people and their capabilities should be the ultimate criteria for assessing the development of a country, not economic growth alone. The HDI can also be used to question national policy choices, asking how two countries with the same level of GNI per capita can end up with different human development outcomes. These contrasts can stimulate debate about government policy priorities. The Human Development Index HDI is a summary measure of average achievement in key dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life, being knowledgeable and have a decent standard of living. The HDI is the geometric mean of normalized indices for each of the three dimensions.

The index is used for bringing forward the human development profile of countries of the world and thus in ranking and categorizing them on the basis of HDI scores. Since then the HDI has attracted great deal of attraction from critics, policy makers, development thinkers and its advocates. In reaction to the diversified views and opinion, the methodology of the HDI has undergone certain changes from time to time. This paper is a humble effort to throw light on those changes.

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a summary measure of average achievement in key dimensions of human development: a long and healthy life, being.
The Human Development Index HDI is a statistic composite index of life expectancy , education literacy rate, gross enrollment ratio at different levels and net attendance ratio , and per capita income indicators, which are used to rank countries into four tiers of human development. While the simple HDI remains useful, it stated that "the IHDI is the actual level of human development accounting for inequality , while the HDI can be viewed as an index of 'potential' human development or the maximum level of HDI that could be achieved if there were no inequality. The index is based on the human development approach, developed by Mahbub ul Haq , often framed in terms of whether people are able to "be" and "do" desirable things in life. Examples include — being: well fed, sheltered, healthy; doing: work, education, voting, participating in community life.

The index considers the health, education and income in the country to provide a measure of human development which is comparable between countries and over time. The first human development index was published in with the goal to be a more comprehensive measure of human development than purely economic measures. The report chooses three key components of human development, longevity later changed to "Long and healthy life" , knowledge, and decent living standards. For each dimension an indicator is chosen which in the report is life expectancy at birth ; expected years of schooling for children and mean years of schooling for adults; and Gross National Income per capita respectively. The indicators are used to create a health index, an education index and an income index each with a value between 0 and 1.
