FEEM Seminar on "Measuring human development: a stochastic dominance approach"



The construction and refinement of the Human Development Index (HDI) has been attracting the interest of research for a long time, in the attempt to measure development in full respect of both its environmental and human dimensions.

This week the FEEM seminar will investigate the optimality of the weighting scheme used to construct the HDI using an approach that relies on consistent tests for stochastic dominance efficiency, showing that the equally weighted HDI is not optimal and that education needs to be weighted considerably more in the optimal indicator of welfare.
