HDI (Human Development Index) is a global and respected parameter of the level of the development of regions. The HDI includes parameters such as life expectancy, education, or per capita income. Similarly to GDP used to assessing the economy development, we included values of HDI: HDI 2018 as the latest available figure and progress of HDI over the last ten years. The map below shows the result of ranking the countries according to the value of HDI. In contrary, the figure shows the result of clustering the African countries based on the HDI data.
The map composition shows different aspects of human development that affects the attractiveness of regions.
