The Netherlands ranks 3rd in 2011 Human Development Index (HDI) by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

The 2011 HDI covers a record 187 countries and territories. To enable cross-country comparisons, the HDI is calculated based on data from leading international data agencies and other credible data sources.

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a summary measure of human development and measures the average achievements in a country in three basic dimensions:
A long and healthy life, as measured by life expectancy at birth
Knowledge, as measured by the adult literacy rate and the combined primary, secondary and tertiary gross enrolment ratio
A decent standard of living, as measured by Gross Domestic Product per capita (Purchasing Parity Power in US dollars)
