The paper “Analysis of Human Development in Romania, 2008-2015 period” aims at carrying out an analysis of human development in Romania in the analysed period. In the first part of the research, we presented a few theoretical notions related to human development, and subsequently, in the second part, we carried out an analysis of the main human development indicators in the analysed period. The most important indicators of human capital are the school enrolment ratio, the average number of schooling years, the literacy rate, and also the ratios of the active population graduating from various types of schooling. Out of these indicators, the schooling years represent the most frequently used variable in determining the human capital stock.
