This paper discusses a modified index for measuring human development. The suggested index is based on the components of the Human Development Index (HDI) developed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) since 1990. It discusses two categories of technical issues related to the HDI for 1995: those related to the components and those relevant to the structure of the index. The data from the Human Development Report 1995 for 174 countries are used to test the robustness of the suggested index and the results are compared to those of the HDI. The new index is then used to delineate, with some justification, different groups of countries at various levels of human development.
