Differentiate between the human development and world development report

Human development  World Development report
a. This notion of development  implies leading a good quality life where individuals develop themselves to the fullest. It includes providing good education, health facilities. This gives us a broader picture of development as specified by Human Development index.It includes the qualitative aspect of development.   It focuses on development in the conventional sense that would mean rise in per capita income and growth in the economy while comparing countries. It takes into account the quantitative aspect of development and does not give a broader perspective about the notion of development

b. This would include the literacy rate ,life expectancy rate, infant mortality rate to determine the development status of a particular region or a country.
It takes into account national income, per capita income, GDP. This indeed is considered as important factor of drawing comparisons between countries. It is the average income or per capita income which is taken into consideration while making comparisons. 

c. All the above aspects of human development could be regarded important to provide a complete picture of development and to lead a quality, dignified life. World bank has specified the criterion accordingly, for categorising countries into developed, developing and underdeveloped countries.
