List of countries by Human Development Index - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of all countries by Human Development Index as included in a United Nations Development Programme's Human Development Report. The latest report was released on 14 March 2013 and compiled on the basis of estimates for 2012.[2]

In the 2010 Human Development Report a further Inequality-adjusted Human Development Index (IHDI) was introduced. While the simple HDI remains useful, it stated that "the IHDI is the actual level of human development (accounting for inequality)" and that "the HDI can be viewed as an index of “potential” human development (or the maximum IHDI that could be achieved if there were no inequality)".[3]

The UN report covers 185 member states of the United Nations (out of 193), along with Hong Kong and the Palestinian territories; 8 UN member states are not included because of lack of data. The average HDI of regions of the World and groups of countries are also included for comparison.

List of countries by GDP (PPP) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article includes three lists of countries of the world sorted by their gross domestic product (GDP) (the value of all final goods and services produced within a state in a given year). The GDP dollar estimates given on this page are derived from purchasing power parity (PPP) calculations.

Using a PPP basis is arguably more useful when comparing generalized differences in total economic output between countries because PPP takes into account the relative costs and the inflation rates of the countries, rather than using just exchange rates which may distort the real differences in income. Economies do self-adjust to currency changes over time, and technology intensive and luxury goods, raw materials and energy prices are mostly unaffected by difference in currency (the latter more by subsidies), however this is taken into account by the price comparison surveys, such as the International Comparison Program, which are used as the basis for PPP calculations. These surveys include both tradable and non-tradable goods in an attempt to estimate a representative basket of all goods.[1]

The twenty largest economies by GDP (PPP) in 2012, according to the IMF.[6]
