The Human Development Report is an independent publication commissioned by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The Human Development Report was started as an important tool for raising awareness about human development around the world.
The Human Development Report introduced the composite human development index, the HDI. The HDI was created as a single statistic which serves as a frame of reference for both social and economic development.
The human development data which is used in the preparation of the Human Development Index (HDI) is provided by a variety of public international sources and represent the best and most current statistics available for those indicators at the time of the preparation of this annual report. Calculations of HDI values and country rankings are made by the Human Development Report Office.
