This is the sixth year that HDRO is computing the IHDI. Is the IHDI a permanent feature of UNDP’s global HDR?

The IHDI was initiated as an experimental index in 2010, alongside the Gender Inequality Index and the Multidimensional Poverty Index. It has been critically examined and discussed at the conferences on measuring human progress held in 2012, 2013 and 2014. It became a regularly computed composite index and it may evolve over time like all other human development indices.
