In its 2013 UNHD Report released one year ago by the UN Development Programme, 18 developing countries were assessed to have done particularly well.
The 2014 UNHD Report ranks the Philippines #117 out of 187 nations - which puts us in the "Medium Human Development" category between the likes of small island-nation Dominican Republic in the Caribbean (#102) and land-locked Nepal in South Asia (#145).
The 2014 UNHD Report also said that the top five countries ranked in terms of the HDI are Norway, Australia, Switzerland, Netherlands and the United States; while the bottom five in the rankings were Niger, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, Chad and Sierra Leone.
