Life Quality

The indicators of life quality in Santa Catarina are comparable to those of more developed countries.

One of the most significant highlights is the Human Development Index – HDI, developed by the United Nations Development Program – UNDP/UN, which measures the level of financial development and life quality of the population. In the calculation of the HDI, the average years of learning (education) are computed, as is the life expectation (longevity) and GDP per capita.

Some examples of Santa Catarina indicators that contribute to high HDI in Santa Catarina:

But it is not only the HDI that demonstrates the state’s level of social and economical development. A marking feature is the offer of quality public services, especially in healthcare and education, as well as social inclusion policies and the reduction of inequality. The results are positive in various other healthcare and social indicators, and in the generation of employment and income.
