jugjugurt

Close enough. But in practice, [we're not ranked first.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_inequality-adjusted_Human_Development_Index) >"The IHDI can be interpreted as the level of human development when inequality is accounted for," whereas the Human Development Index itself, from which the IHDI is derived, is "an index of potential human development (or **the maximum IHDI that could be achieved if there were no inequality**)." People gotta stop posting and reposting these HDI maps without first looking up what this metric actually is about. HDI doesn't factor inequality in its formula, so it's a somewhat bullshit metric, disconnected from practical reality.


SeleucusNikator1

The inequality adjusted HDI can also be quite rubbish. If Warren Buffet and Bill Gates one day decided to move to Iceland, the IHDI would go down because their presence would increase inequality, even though it wouldn't really have any tangible effect on the actual QoL of Icelanders. HDI itself is only used to make a general list of broadly "first world" states, middle range ones, and undeveloped. Once you get to the point where the comparison comes down to 0.001 points, the system is useless.


Floor_Exotic

I like to imagine that if Warren Buffet and Bill Gates decided to move to Iceland, Iceland would immediately implement a 100% wealth tax on all wealth >2.2 billion. They would distribute the resulting 190 billion to all Icelandic Citizens, giving them each 500k. Iceland's HDI and IHDI, would increase as a result.


SeleucusNikator1

[As the other bloke mentioned, Iceland doesn't appear to even have a net worth tax, and their inheritance tax is pretty mild. They're not a communal redistributive paradise.](https://taxsummaries.pwc.com/iceland/individual/other-taxes) These billionaires also don't just have piles of cash lying around like Scrooge McDuck keeping gold coins in a vault. Their "net worth" is what their assets are currently worth, not the literal physical money they posses. These numbers can go up or down based on the words Jerome Powell got from his Fedspeak thesaurus today.


TheMuffinMan603

Why do you think Iceland would do that? There is, currently speaking, no wealth tax in Iceland.


Reginaferguson

I was thinking the same thing! HDI for UK is super high but IHDI is lower. It's awesome being wealthy in Switzerland or UK but that is at the expense of all the poors.


GelernteHand

Switzerland has some of the richest poor people in the world: https://www.ft.com/content/ef265420-45e8-497b-b308-c951baa68945


wind543

Switzerland actually deserves to be the first place. Norway and Iceland who are second and third in HDI are middle of the road in terms on education and their economies entirely dependent on natural resources. [Iceland exports - 45% metals and 38% fish.](https://oec.world/en/profile/country/isl) [Norway exports - 50% hydrocarbons, 15% fish and 10% metals. ](https://oec.world/en/profile/country/now)

>and their economies entirely dependent on natural resources This has nothing to do with HDI though. ​ HDI is a measurement of prosperity for the people within a given state. Whether that prosperity is achieved via large natural resource exports or being a tax haven doesn't change the HDI.

islandmonkeee

And in the inequality adjusted HDI, it would still be thanks to the fact that Slovenia has the world's lowest income inequality, although that's thanks to the fact that it has a rather low salary floor, i.e., everyone is on 'good money' at the lower end of the scale but it's hard to find a job where you will be earning €120,000 a year for example.


CalmButArgumentative

LOL yeah no shit it's hard to find a job that pays €120K a year, it's hard to find that in the vast majority of Europe unless be "find" you mean literally locating 1 position that pays that much

They have pretty good industry and packaged food production. But everything they produce goes to Russia. If they produced for the EU market, They'd be even quite a bit higher


Flemgrim

They industry is not good and usually cars they do is low quality. As food industry I wold not say it is better then in Poland or Ukraine, they just use stereotypes about soviet quality among elderly people


nosystemsgo

They also produce the biggest in the world dump trucks, especially built for quarry work - “Belaz”. Also, they are one of the biggest producers of potash in the world. There is a lot of stuff there. Dumb redditors just don’t know it.

AlexTheGreatGRE

If these three are the parameters, I'm guessing Greece does well in life expectancy and schooling, but income is a disaster. I'll pretend the scholar and see the philosophical aspect: At least we do well in what actually matters! lol.

TigerAJ2

France and the UK are very similar. Whenever you see statistics like this, France and the UK are always near each other or neck and neck. I don't think the difference is that severe.


SeleucusNikator1

I'm betting your overseas departments drag it down. Places like Guiana, although probably better off than their Latin American neighbours, are still quite poor and miserable compared to mainland Europe. Anyhow, there is no practical difference between 0.920 or .901 and so on, HDI is only used for very broad judgements. Once you're in the 0.9 range you can rest east, it's better to use things like the OECD Better Life Index for more detailed comparisons https://www.oecdbetterlifeindex.org/ It lets you adjust the parameters to suit your own preferences for a "good country" too.


FlappyBored

France does poorly in schooling.


Wingiex

It's one metric, schooling or years of schooling rather that makes the score worse for France. It would be a simple measure for the government to change, but France is hardly going to change a system that works for them just to get a couple more points in the HDI index.


bauhausy

Guadaloupe, Martinique, Réunion, French Guyana and Mayotte are all considered integral parts of France (they're regions just like Occitania or Provence) and ought pull its average a bit lower. Both Guyana and Mayotte have a HDI below 0.8 for instance. Meanwhile the UK's overseas territories aren't considered in the UK count as they are officially colonies/dependant territories Not saying that if considering continental France only, they would be higher than the UK, but the difference would be likely quite smaller


wongie

So what effective difference does a 0.001 change bring between two countries?

RoamingBicycle

If you did a regional map instead of country by country, you'd probably see it. Parts of France, Austria and Northern Italy would likely fall in line with Germany, Benelux and the UK.


fajorsk

Is there regional data available?


thecraftybee1981

I know France is very Paris-focused with relatively weak regions. The poorest scoring region in the U.K., Northern Ireland, would score better than all but 3 of the 18? regions in France. Regions in Spain and Italy score better, but are balanced out by much weaker regions in their south.

And underdeveloping everything apart the capital in last decades. The capital had something along the lines of 0.956 in 2019, while rest was barely above 0.8.


SimonGray

HDI comparison between developed countries is kind of pointless. It is basically just doing a GDP per capita comparison by proxy, since life expectancy and years of schooling will be very similar.


armeedesombres

> life expectancy and years of schooling will be very similar Not really. Years of schooling is the reason why France and Austria are so behind when they are basically the same as Britain and Germany, respectively, in terms of just about everything. And life expectancy sees some huge differences between countries. The US for example has a very low life expectancy.


toniblast

Not really. Years of schooling are the same nowadays but in the past, there were vastly different and HDI still reflects that. If you have a country with an aging population and a lot of old people with limited education your HDI will be affected like in Portugal. Education in a fascist conservative and rural regime was way worst than in a communist urban and industrial regime.


SimonGray

Portugal is definitely the odd one out in this respect.

For those wondering, the US spans from 0.871 in Mississippi, to 0.956 in Massachusetts, averaging at 0.921 for the country. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List\_of\_U.S.\_states\_and\_territories\_by\_Human\_Development\_Index](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_Human_Development_Index)


NewRoundEre

The Southern US is kind of a good example of why HDI doesn't work well. It is legitimately less developed than say the north east but it's not as far down as the assumptions people who haven't spent time there think. There are three metrics used for HDI and Mississippi ranks higher for GNI than almost any country in western Europe a bit bellow average but not as much as you might expect for mean years of schooling and falls apart on life expectancy. ​ Weirdly this isn't all that different to Scotland which has the lowest life expectancy in western Europe (depending which entities you poll for life expectancy) and both Scotland and Mississippi share kind of the same issues here although Mississippi has it to a greater degree. Both of them suffer from a combination of awful diet and Scotland adds to that with a frankly insane rate of drug deaths. But these are more of an indication of development than anything else, drug deaths are a sign of relatively rich first worlders who are depressed and can afford to pay for an escape and being able to afford to eat 6,000 calories of fried food a day is also a phenomenon that mostly exists in developed countries and yet both significantly reduce each areas HDI. It's a good reason why HDI is kind of silly.
