The '''Human Poverty Index''' is an indication of the [[standard of living]] in a country, developed by the [[United Nations]] (UN). For high development countries, the UN considers this a better indicator than the [[Human Development Index]][http://hdr.undp.org/hdr2006/pdfs/report/Human_development_indicators.pdf]. In order to reflect the gaps in the Human Development Index, the United Nations came out with the Human Poverty Index (HPI) in 1997. The HPI measures the deficiencies in the three indexes of the human development index: long and healthy life, knowledge and a decent standard of living. The HPI is meant to provide a broader view of human development and is adapted to developed countries to reveal social exclusion.<ref>"World Health Organization- Poverty and Development." 22 October 2009 http://www.who.int/bulletin/volumes/85/10/07-045955/en/index.html.</ref>

The Human Development Reports website summarizes this as "A composite index measuring deprivations in the three basic dimensions captured in the human development index — a long and healthy life, knowledge and a decent standard of living — and also capturing social exclusion." See [http://hdr.undp.org/docs/statistics/indices/technote_1.pdf] for the details of calculating this index.
