Description
- Human development index is a measure used to compare countries on how well they’re doing in human development - Before you can rank countries like this, you have to define and operationalize that - Right now, HDI is operationalized as life expectancy at birth (population health and longevity), education index (mean years of schooling), and standard of living (gross national income per capita) - To operationalize something you start out with a fuzzy concept, go further and further into detail, decide what you will count, measure it - Culture = the knowledge, language, values, customs, and material objects that are passed from person to person and from one generation to the next - Material culture = physical creations we make, use, and share - Non-material culture = abstract human creations such as language, political systems, etc. - We learn about culture
