This work propose an index design (designated as HDI-ordinated) as choice the ONU’s Human Development Index (HDI), basic in his Human Development Reports. To be involved in that new index more statistic information connected with the human development, improve substantially the countries ranking of the United Nations reports. The statistic information selection for the index set off the need to strenghten data collection and reporting at the national and international levels, and to standardize defi nitions and data collections methods. El presente trabajo propone el diseño de un indicador como alternativa al Indice de Desarrollo Humano (IDH) elaborado por la ONU y base de sus Informes de Desarrollo Humano. Al intervenir en este nuevo indicador más información estadística que guarda relación con dicho desarrollo, es de esperar que permita mejorar la clasifi cación de países según su desarrollo humano. Adicionalmente, la selección de la información estadística que alimenta al índice pone de relieve la importancia de contar con sufi cientes estadísticas de calidad para todos los países del mundo, elaboradas con iguales criterios y defi niciones que aseguren su comparabilidad.
