L’Indice De Développement Humain : Une Évaluation Pour Mayotte
The position of Mayotte in terms of development is a critical issue following its recent accession to the status of French Overseas Department. In this article we propose measuring the level of development by the Human De-velopment Index (HDI) established by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), a composite indicator that integrates dimensions relating to monetary wealth, health, and education within an economy. We perform the calculation for Mayotte and La Reunion (the other French Overseas Department in the Indian Ocean), for years 2005-2007, presenting all the assumptions and estimates that have proven necessary. In the light of this assessment, it appears clearly that Mayotte’s development gap is substantial since its level of human development ranks approximately 100th on a global scale, as compared to La Reunion, ranking 40th and France, ranking 8th on the index.
