India 134th out of 182 countries

India ranks 134th out of 182 countries, the same as in 2006, in the 2009 Human Development Report released
on Monday.
China registers the largest gain in rank, moving up seven places to finish at 92. The United States dropped one place to end at 13.

The HDR ranks countries on the Human Development Index (HDI), measuring their progress on three key indicators
— education, life expectancy and income measured by purchasing power parity.

Developed in 1990 jointly by Amartya Sen (nobel winner Indian economist)and Mahbub ul Haq, the HDI is a summary measure of a country’s human development.
