Subnational Human Development
Our Subnational Human Development Index (SHDI) and Subnational Gender Development Index (SGDI) are a translation of the UNDP’s official HDI and GDI (hdr.undp.org) to the subnational level.
The SHDI is an average of the subnational values of three dimensions: education, health and standard of living.
Our world maps allow the visualization of any indicator across all countries for which data is available at a given point in time. Subnational indices can also be displayed on the map showing differences within countries.
We provide easy to navigate data tables displaying the indicator information in a grid-like format of rows and columns. Information is available along three dimensions: (i) country, (ii) time, and (iii) choice of indicator(s).
To download our data tables in Excel or CSV format, a free-of-charge registration with GDL is necessary. Registration takes less than 5 minutes. Sub-samples as well as complete datasets can be downloaded.
