This chapter is devoted to the discussion of empirical findings related to research on the measurement of human development, inequality, and poverty. It is divided into three main sections. The first of these three sections discusses some practical concerns raised about the Human Development Index and how these concerns have been empirically addressed. The second section discusses various empirical studies and findings relating to the level of human development and the level of inequality in human development. Finally, the authors discuss the empirical research and findings relating to multidimensional poverty.
