The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) released the 2010 Human Development Index (HDI) Report.
This report introduced a new way of measuring development by combining indicators of health, education and wealth into one index, the HDI.
According to the UNDP Website, "Human Development is a development paradigm that is about much more than the rise or fall of national incomes. It is about creating an environment in which people can develop their full potential and lead productive, creative lives in accord with their needs and interests.
"People are the real wealth of nations. Development is thus about expanding the choices people have to lead lives that they value. And it is thus about much more than economic growth, which is only a means —if a very important one —of enlarging people’s choices."
Here is the 2010 HDI list of top ten and bottom ten countries.
