2016 Halloran Annual Report

The Pursuit of Human Well-Being was a three year landmark book project of Halloran Philanthropies which tells the remarkable story of the journey of human wellbeing throughout the world. The Pursuit of Human Wellbeing uncovered extraordinary findings in human wellbeing which have occurred primarily since the end of World War II.

The Human Development Index (HDI), developed by the United Nations, was the primary metric used to assess the social and economic development of countries over time. The gains in wellbeing throughout the world were particularly dramatic from 1980 to 2014, and the driving forces behind the gains were many and varied. All the regions in the world experienced significant improvements in life expectancy, health, education and poverty reduction.
