Final HDI Report HDI is a statistical tool used to measure a country's overall achievement in its social and economic dimensions. The HDI makes it possible to track changes in development levels over time and to compare development levels in different countries. But HDI is not the only way to measure human development, there is also: IHDI, MPI, GII, these tools also measure human development. From the Readings I understood better what they try to look for in the countries to try and get specific data that can be compared with other countries without one country having an advantage. Their goal is to understand patterns of human development and the ways to allow and enable people to lead lives that they value. In the report they talk about human beings being the most important thing for their countries unlike GDP which only focuses on wealth in a country. The goal is to enable people to live long healthy and creative lives instead of ways to maximizing wealth. Human Development is a process of f enlarging people's choices, the most critical one are to lead a long and healthy life to be educated and to enjoy a decent standard of living, while also having political freedom and human rights and self-respect.
HDI Rank country 1990
Peru’s HDI was increasing all the way from year 1990 to 2013, Peru’s HDI never decreased through these years. From the table we can see that Peru’s HDI continuously has increased in ten years from 0.595 in1990 to 0.615 in 2000, it increased by 0.02. Then from years 2000 to 2005 it went up to 0.682, which increased by 0.067
And from 2005 to 2008 increased by 0.012, Peru’s HDI kept increasing the following years from 0.707 to 0.722 to 0.734 and finally reaches 0.737 in 2013, the increase was up by 0.013 to 0.015 to 0.012 to 0.003 in year 2013. These increase in Peru’s HDI through the years mean that the health, education, and income are increasing which means that Peru is sociably and economically is developing.

HDI is a combination of income, education and health. So high HDI means high quality of life. IHDI value show that Peru has 0.562 HDI, which is higher than Latin America 0.559. The IHDI takes into account not only the average achievements of a country on health, education and income, but also how those achievements are distributed among its population by “discounting” each dimension's average value according to its level of inequality. The table shows us that inequality causes Peru a loss of 23.4% in development, compare it to Latin America which Its IDHI is 19.4%. Which means that Latin America has inequality issues. This chart provides us with very helpful information. Latin American countries are improving in a lot of categories, the one category that needs to improve upon is inequality in Education. I believe that in Latin American countries more emphasis and pressure is put on the male members of a family to do well in school and provide for their family while the women are tasked to helping out with the family and trying to raise a family. While this has thankfully started to change in the past 20 years more has to be done to be able to help improve the living conditions for all the people. Men and women in Latin American Countries.
