Kazakhstan moved up one position in the UN Human Development Index, Kazakh Foreign Affairs Minister Yerzhan Kazykhanov wrote on his Twitter page.

"Kazakhstan ranks 68th out of 187 countries against 2010 in a group of countries with high human development" he wrote.

The Human Development Index (HDI) is a comparative measure of life expectancy, literacy, education and standards of living for countries worldwide. It is a standard means of measuring well-being, especially child welfare. It is used to distinguish whether the country is a developed, a developing or an under-developed country, and also to measure the impact of economic policies on quality of life.
