This document was originally compiled in 2011 with information from a range of Human Development Reports and other publications by UNDP. The Oxford Poverty and Human development Initiative (OPHI) researchers Diego Zavaleta and Joanne Tomkinson edited source materials for this draft, with support from Sabina Alkire, Melissa Friedman, Gisela Robles Aguilar, Sarah Valenti, Maria Emma Santos, and others at HDRO including Amie Gaye and Tim Scott. The final draft was revised by Milorad Kovacevic and Cecilia Calderon in March 2015.
