Gendering human development: a working paper for computing HDI, GDI and GII for state of India

In view of importance of regular reporting of the state-wise values of HDI, GDI and GII, an attempt has been made to compute HDI, GDI and GII using the HDRO methodology and available data sets for the States/UTs as well as for the country as a whole for the years 2011-12 and 2017-18. This exercise also highlights the data gaps that constrain the computation of indices. Rankings of the States on the indices as well as sub-indices of HDI, GDI and GII have been analyzed to enable the stake-holders for taking up corrective policies, programmes and schemes.
