Abstract

Since the evolution of the human development index in 1990 there has been a vivacious debate on measurement related issues of quality of human life among the nations. It is a long-established verity that the existing HDI presents averages and thus conceals wide discrepancy and disproportion in distribution of human development in overall population and does not take into account the distribution of human development within a population subgroup. This study is intended to look in to human development scenario at household level in Lakshadweep and found that the human development scenario in Lakshadweep is not very dismal and not so stupendous and outstanding in Lakshadweep, it is more or less moderate. No household has achieved highest development in human development index and none of household lags behind in Household Human Development Index. The study bring to a close that 45% of household has achieved high level of human development, 57.5 % attained moderate level of human development and remaining 2.5 % account for low level of human development. The study also found that the gap between two extreme households in respect of human development and three dimensional indices is comparably low and inter household variation in the level of human development in Lakshadweep is very low.
