Ceorana Department of State Human Development Index
- This article is about the Ceoranan Department of State Human Development Index. For the Human Development Index used by the region of Forest, see Human Development Index (Forest).
The Ceorana Department of State Human Development Index, or CHDI is a formula developed by the Ceorana Department of State to rank nations by their "human development". The ratings are published approximately monthly. Although a rough formula is available to all, the only "official" rankings are the ones published by the Ceorana Department of State. Numbers are published for all nations who ask, however, "rankings" are only available for those nations who have a spot on the map in the International Democratic Union, because rankings for the whole world are superficial, as not all of those nations are ranked.
The CHDI is calculated in three parts, the first two helping to determine the third. Since NationStates forbids nations to tell other nations statistics such as GDP, literacy rate and life expectancy, the CHDI makes educated guesses using numbers that are given. The final CHDI is the three indices averaged.
The first part is the GDP index. It is calculated by dividing the approximate logarithm of the GDP/Capita minus the theoretical minimum GDP/capita by the difference of the theoretical maximum and theoretical minimum GDP/capita numbers.
The second part is the Education index. It is derived from the literacy rate, which is approximated using the amount of education spending as well as the proportion of education spending and GDP/capita.
The last part is the Life Expectancy index. It is calculated by dividing the difference of the nation's life expectancy and 25 by 60.
Life expectancy is calculated using the average of the previous two indexes as well as healthcare spending numbers.
The current formula is expected to be phased out for the January /2007 calculations, to be replaced using numbers from a complete economic calculator being developed by Ceorana's government.
