Index of Human Progress
Index of Human Progress" Canada ranks a weak 17th on the Fraser Institute's "Index of Human Progress", compared to its 3rd place ranking on the United Nations' often-quoted Human Development Index. The UN index is deeply flawed. It uses an inappropriate mathematical formula, deliberately designed to underweight a nation?s economic progress. And, the UN fails to take into account technological progress and the ability of people to communicate with each other. The Fraser Institute?s Index of Human Progress corrects both errors. It fully weights economic progress and takes account of technology and communication.
