Radar IDHM

In order to provide subsidies and up-to-date information for public policy analysis and proposals, UNDP, Ipea and the João Pinheiro Foundation organized the MHDI Radar: a study based on the National Household Sample Survey (PNAD, in Portuguese initials), also produced by the IBGE, which allows to update the information made available by the Human Development Atlas in Brazil.

The first results of this project were made available for the period between 2011 and 2015. However, with the substitution of the Yearly PNAD for Continuous PNAD by IBGE, the efforts to continue updating the set of platform information demanded advances in the adaptation between these researches.

In addition to the MHDI and its disaggregation by gender and race for the years of 2016 and 2017, the Radar also provides the results of the three sub-indexes - MHDI Education, MHDI Longevity and MHDI Income - and a set of 60 socioeconomic indicators. This information allows us to expand the analysis of human development in the period from 2012 to 2017 in Brazil, the Federated Units and the metropolitan regions.

The updating of the results produced with information from the Continuous PNAD does not exclude the studies performed by the MHDI Radar based on the Yearly PNAD and on this page it is possible to find more information about these studies in the Methodological Notes, in the Result Analysis or in the data charts available for download below.

MHDI Radar Yearly PNAD

The results of the MHDI and its three dimensions calculated with information extracted from the Yearly PNAD are available to the years 2011 to 2015. Due to statistical limitations, data are only available for Brazil, Federated Units, nine metropolitan regions (RM Belém, RM Fortaleza, RM Recife, RM Salvador, RM Belo Horizonte, RM Rio de Janeiro, RM São Paulo, RM Curitiba, RM Porto Alegre) and RIDE Federal District.

MHDI Radar Continuous PNAD

The Continuous PNAD was implemented by IBGE in 2012 and, since then, has undergone adaptations that made possible the definitive replacement of the Yearly PNAD in 2016. The results calculated based on this research are available for Brazil, 27 Federated Units, 20 metropolitan regions and RIDE Grande Teresina, disaggregated by gender and race.
