India Youth Development Index and Report 2017
It is constructed by The Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development (RGNIYD) to track the trends in Youth Development across the States. Dimensions on which the YDI 2017 has been formed are: Education, Health, Political Participants Civic Participation, Work and Social Inclusion.
In the India Youth Development Index 2017, the first five dimensions are retained same as that of Global YDI. Global YDI is different from YDI constructed for India in one unique way; YDI for India adds a new domain, social inclusion, to assess the inclusiveness of societal progress as structural inequalities persist in Indian society. This construction helps to identify the gaps that require intensification of policy intervention.
