Abstract: HDI is a well-known and widely used composite index, but it has two statistical defects in its traditional calculation method: one is that it has no distributional-sensitivity to each of its sub-indicators, and the other one is that it ignores the equilibrium among its dimensional indices. Focusing on the latter and following the axiomatic approach, this paper presents an improved method for HDI in component equilibrium oriented. The empirical results show that, compared to both the traditional and the existing composite method, this improved method can not only give better expression to the main idea of human development, but also improve HDI’s statistical discrimination. So the improved method can be taken as a new choice for calculating HDI.
