Human Development - Pakistan

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a composite statistic used to rank some area by level of "human development" and separate developed (high development), developing (middle development), and underdeveloped (low development) areas. The statistics is composed from data on life expectancy, education and per-capita GNI (as an indicator of standard of living) collected at the national level.

This is a list of districts of Pakistan in order of their Human Development Index (HDI) as of 2005, the latest year for which data is available. The HDI values are provided by the Research Report No.73 "Trends in Regional Human Development Indices" by Haroon Jamal and Amir Jahan Khan.[1]

All provinces and the vast majority of the districts have a medium HDI value (0.500-0.799). The districts of Karachi and Jhelum are approaching a high HDI value (>0.800) whilst Awaran, Sibi, Hangu and Battagram are about to make the transition from low to medium human development. Data was not available for Islamabad, Dera Bugti and Kohlu. All data has been narrowed down to 3 Decimal Places.

This data is published by a third-party organisation and is not officially endorsed by the United Nations. Thus, it is incompatible with data published by the United Nations due to variations in the calculations and formulas used by both parties.
