This chapter is devoted to the discussion of the measurement of human development and poverty, especially in United Nations Development Programme’s global Human Development Reports. The authors first outline the methodological evolution of different indices over the last two decades, focusing on the well-known Human Development Index (HDI) and the poverty indices. They then critically evaluate these measures and discuss possible improvements that could be made.
