Methodology
Inequality-adjusted Human Development Index (IHDI) is a standard way of measuring the well-being of the people of a country. The IHDI combines a country’s average achievements in health, education and income with how those achievements are distributed among country’s population by “discounting” each dimension’s average value according to its level of inequality.
