HDI (Human Development Index) rating: France = 16

(The HDI scale is used by the United Nations Development Programme to measure the average developments in a specific country based on three central tenets of human development.  There are: life expectancy at birth which can determine a long and healthy life; the average adult literacy rate (this amounts to a two-thirds ratio) combined with the enrolment of individuals in primary, secondary and higher education (this is a one-third weight); and the final aspect is the standard of living which is determined by the GDP (gross domestic product) of the country per capita at purchasing power parity).
