Abstract

Aim: This study aims to analyze the impact/relationship of the health indicators and the human development
index over the globe’s misery index.
Materials and Method: In this paper, a comparative data analysis of the misery index, health indicators like
mortality rate, disability rate, Quality of life index, and human development index, along with the ranking
based on the human development index, were done by tabulating the data collected from the electronic
sources.
Results: There was a strong correlation between the misery index, human development index, and health
indicators.
Conclusion: This paper clearly shows that the misery index of a country was highly influenced by the health
indicators, such as the mortality rate, disability rate, and Quality of life. Further, the human development
index also had a comparative impact on the misery index of a country. Hence, this study depicted a descriptive
statistical relationship among the misery index, the health indicators (mortality rate, disability rate, Quality
of life) and the Human Development Index (HDI).
