As the development cable model (right) shows, development is a multi-faceted process

At its core is economic development, but to achieve real progress social, political, environmental and personal development is also needed.

Recognising the complex nature of development is why development is often measured using an index, which combines a range of data

Indices are considered more accurate than single data points such as GDP per capita.

The Human Development Index (HDI)

Life expectancy at birth + Literacy rate + Enrolment rate + GDP per capita PPP

Physical Quality of Life Index (PQLI)

Life expectancy  + Literacy rate + Infant Mortality rate
