Human Development Index - Sri Lanka
Our HDI value is 0.751 and our rank is 93. This is the best performance of South Asia and worst country of our region is Bangladesh and its rank is 139 and HDI value is 0.520. The HDI is a evaluation tool which is going beyond per capita income. When we analyzing about status of a country with per capita income the poverty and other dark sides undermine with the income of economical giants of that country. As example when we calculating our per capita income definitely there will be incomes of 10% people who enjoy 80% of wealth of country. But HDI is somewhat strong tool to measure the present dimensions of human development of a country.
(HDI value is according to 2005 analysis - Ref. http://hdr.undp.org)
