Abstract

In the past, a single measure that was widely used to compare standard of living between countries is a country’s per capita GDP (Gross Domestic Product). Due to many limitations of this particular measure as a measure of standard living, a new measure namely Human Development Index (HDI) which was devised by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) can be used to measure standard of living between countries.
