Where are we? The human development index trends tell an important story in that aspect. The mid-1970s almost all regions have been progressively increasing their HDI score . East Asia and South Asia have accelerated progress since 1990. Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), following a catastrophic decline in the first half of the 1990s, has also recovered to the level before the reversal.
