    Now that you clicked on it because of title:

    Lets go down memory lane involving one particular BD dweeb (and some of his posse when the occasion presented itself).

    Remember how this character kept hollering that BD had better "human capital" than India because it beat India in the 2016 rankings by one place (104 vs 105). My response was always a lot depends on the index components and multi-indexing composites get weaker (as the debate naturally inflates as to what should get strong weightage and what shouldn't)...that we should gauge long term trends for such indices rather than cherry pick single years (given how the indices themselves change their methodologies over time)

    But nope the rank was the be all, end all to this fellow.

    A few such snippets:

    Thus karma always has the last laugh. Enjoy losing yet again @Bilal9 ...when you have time away from looking at the spam of rohingya return to BD threads. ;)

    2016:

    2017:

    https://weforum.ent.box.com/s/dari4dktg4jt2g9xo2o5pksjpatvawdb

    First all important (to bilal and co) rank:

    India rank = 103 (improvement of 2 ranks)

    BD rank = 111 (worsening by 7 ranks) - No wonder BD is also starting to slow down big time in Human Development index as well (over say last 5 years). Expect that to continue for forseeable future.

    ===========

    Some highlights of the biggest discrepancies:

    GDP per capita USD PPP (i.e realized per capita consumption):

    BD = 3300
    IND = 6100

    Output per worker USD PPP:

    BD = 7500
    IND = 15600

    Public spending on education (% of GDP):

    BD = 1.9%
    IND = 3.8%

    Quality of primary schools (higher the score, the better):

    BD = 34.4
    IND = 61.5

    Tertiary education enrolment rate:

    BD = 13.4%
    IND = 25.5%


    Quality of education system (higher the score, the better):

    BD = 41.4
    IND = 59.1

    Extent of (education) staff training (higher the score, the better):

    BD = 38.3
    IND = 59.9

    Economic complexity (higher the score, the better):

    BD = 32.8
    IND = 54.0

    Availability of skilled employees:

    BD = 43.1
    IND = 58.7

    What a loser!

    India is a silly entity masquerading as a country.

    BD will be around long after India disintegrates.

    No one cares about BD claims. Your institutional and corruption ratings (and thus data credibility) are closer to North Korea than any world average (don't make me post those again).

    Just look up "butthole bangladesh" on youtube and the tons of other BD slum videos of open defecation and parry it with single digit % BBS claims if you want to.....while we get to actually fixing our problems physically and permanently (instead of making them go away only on paper like BBS) and put more and more distance between you and us in Human Development Index (did you bother to see how much you increased in points there compared to India last few years?....even though you are further behind and should be catching up if BBS socio-economic miracle is to be credibly believed?)

    Open defecation in India is now at 30% mark and dropping fast....measured by way more credible institutions than BBS and institutional decrepit BD NGOs. So take your BBS claims and shove em up your defecating you know what capiche?

    I think she meant human capital here in this 2017 report. Myanmar is ranked at 89th spot out of 130. BD at 111/130.

    Myanmar is helped a lot in its score by "deployment" (labour participation rates etc) and "capacity" (realised literacy and education attainment rates)...compared to "development" and "know-how" brackets.

    Overall Human capital report is more weighted by education/training/skills compared to HDI.

    Plenty of areas of course for all countries to improve in. Myanmar quality of primary schools is one example in its case.

    What is wrong with you?

    In BD culture it is shameful to defecate in public.

    Dude, let me tell about someone who lived in BD in the 1980s. There was no reports of anyone engaging in open defecation miles within my village as everyone, even the poorest had a tolilet of some sort.

    In India people openly defecate on the beach.:no:

    Open defecation is a mainly Hndu problem in S Asia.

    Not what is seen from the youtube videos or BD people I know recollection. I mean was BD open defecation always at near 0% according to its own claims then?

    Cool. 3 million genocide story people have much credibility on other such stories. Hence the wonderful ranking you have on institutional credibility and corruption....just like transparent, choc-full story states of wonder like North Korea.

    Hence the wonderful karma that revisits you now, be it rohingya, be it ranking on HCR (here), HDI score, CPI, economist liveability and myriad others. You like to live in the "let me tell you" story world.....and thus the reality sneaks up on you and takes no prisoner when it happens. Keep at it....it serves everyone else best that you do.

    No longer talking about who BD outranks anymore :P...because Dada can't be included anymore.....and only covered by one media group.

    More WEF, HDI and other BD atrophying coming up this year and next!

    Comparison to the 2016 edition

    Since the release of the first edition of the Index in 2013, much thoughtful feedback has been received.

    In addition, we have continuously monitored data sources and methodological updates in the wider human capital
    literature for opportunities to further refine the Index. As a result the latest edition of the Index incorporates some notable changes that are aimed at streamlining key concepts and enhancing the reader’s comprehension of the dynamics driving the growth of human capital. These are described below.

    As in previous editions, the 2017 Report groups results across five age groups (0–14, 15–24, 25–54, 55–64, 65+). While retaining the Report’s traditional focus on maximizing human capital across the age range, indicators have been reorganized into four distinctive thematic subindexes: Capacity, Deployment, Development and Know-how. By contrast, previous editions had grouped indicators into only two themes: Learning and Employment. Under this year’s enhanced framework, the indicators “literacy and numeracy” and “employment gender gap” have also been distributed across the age range, expanding the comparability between age groups within the Capacity and Deployment subindex.

    In the 2016 edition of the Index, the age groups acted as de-facto subindexes and the Index was derived by weighting each age group by the distribution of the global population. In this enhanced 2017 edition, the four thematic dimensions are the subindexes and are weighted equally while the age groups are population-weighted dimensions within the new subindexes. Therefore, to calculate the Index, we first aggregate each age group within the subindex and then derive the subindex score by weighting each bundle by the specific distribution of the country’s population. As a consequence, the Index is now more nuanced in highlighting strengths and weaknesses in talent capacity and deployment by taking different demographic structures into account.

    The indicators Long term unemployment rate, Child labour and Healthy life expectancy have been omitted from
    the core Index in this year’s edition for conceptual focus and to prevent overlaps with other indicators in the Index. They remain important contextual factors and covered within the main chapter. In addition, two indicators have been removed from the index due to consistently weak and/or irregular data coverage: Basic education survival rate and Over- and Under-education. Finally, contextual data in the Country Profiles have been updated to include information on wages, productivity and social security.

    Good, I would like to congratulate the Indian people on one of their greatest achievement ever of securing the 104th position among 130 countries in the Human Capital Index 2017, leaving Bangladesh FAR behind at 111th position. Well done! :tup:
