Prepared by a team of eminent economists and distinguished development professionals, Human Development Report 1998 reviews the challenges that all people and all countries face - to forge consumption patterns that are more environmentally friendly, more socially equitable, that meet basic needs of all and that protect consumer health and safety. This book marshals environmental, developmental, technological and moral arguments to present a critique of consumption patterns that are inimical to human development and an agenda for action to create an enabling environment for sustainable consumption for human development.

Technical note: Computing the indices

The HDI is based on three indicators: longevity, as measured by life expectancy at birth; educational attainment, as measured by a combination of adult literacy (two-thirds weight) and the combined first-, second- and third-level gross enrolment ratio (one-third weight); and standard of living, as measured by real GDP per capita (PPP$).
