The human development of Rio varies greatly by locality, reflecting the spatial segregation and socioeconomic inequalities in the city. In 2000, there were several Rio neighborhoods with Human Development Index scores higher than the most developed countries in the world.

  • Leblon neighbourhood (HDI: 0.967; at the same level of Norway, the world's highest country HDI)
  • Tijuca neighborhood (HDI: 0.740; at the same level of Armenia)

Famous quotes containing the words human and/or development:

    A kiss may ruin a human life.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    ... work is only part of a man’s life; play, family, church, individual and group contacts, educational opportunities, the intelligent exercise of citizenship, all play a part in a well-rounded life. Workers are men and women with potentialities for mental and spiritual development as well as for physical health. We are paying the price today of having too long sidestepped all that this means to the mental, moral, and spiritual health of our nation.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
