Funding institution: Bancaja

The overall objective of this research has been to update the data bank that supports the project as well as to extend
the work done in previous editions (2003 and 2009) in two directions. This study presents the evolution of the
human development in Spain and its autonomous communities between 1980 and 2010, following a double
methodology. Through the methodology developed in the Human Development Report by the United Nations in
2010, the human development index (HDI) has been built for Spain and its regions for the said period. Also,
using a method developed by Carmen Herrero, Ricardo Martínez (University of Malaga) and Antonio Villar,
which respects the original construction of the HDI, appropriate changes have been made to avoid problems
and inconsistencies, and a new indicator has been built, the NHDI. This index has been estimated for Spain
and its autonomous communities for the 1980-2010 period.
