Comparison of the human development between OIC countries and the other countries of the world

Ali Changi Ashtiani, Hadi Ghaffari


Good education and health have intrinsic value for people's well-being. And the two are closely linked: education helps health improvement, and good health contributes to better education. Moreover, education contributes to economic growth and raises poor people's incomes. Improvements in health also generate significant economic returns. On the other hand, economic growth provides more resources to invest in education and health. Accordingly human development and economic growth have two-way link and in fact studying the human development is simultaneously examination of the economic growth.

In this research paper, we want to compare the human development between Oie countries and the other countries of the world, using life expectancy, education and GDP indices (These indices are components of human development index.)

The most important findings of this paper show that the human development index in ore countries is lower than the same in the other countries of the world, since average of this index in ore countries is 0.638 and in the other countries of the world is 0.762. The average of human development index in Oie countries even is lower than the countries with medium human development (0.681).
