Towards a methodology for assessing the Human Development Index in the Chilean construction industry
The Human Development Index HDI is a summarized quantification of human development of nations, based on three dimensions: income, education and health, classifying countries differently to the Gross National Income GNI index classification. However, for the construction industry, the authors found no plausible evidence of exhaustive studies in this sector, from the standpoint of the HDI. Thus, the present study seeks to provide a methodology to calculate the HDI for workers in the construction industry by using Chile as a case study. In this study, it was found that the HDI in construction varies geographically with the variation in the income dimension, but not with respect to education or health dimensions. These results for the construction sector were then compared with the conventional HDI, finding differences. This would confirm that workers in construction differ from workers in other sectors.
