According to the UN Cameroon is in the category of countries with low levels of human development in the world!

According to the economic magazine; ‘Investir Au Cameroun’ in the 2016 Human Development Index (HDI) report released on 21 March by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Cameroon is in the category of countries with low levels of human development in the world. The country ranks 153rd in the world, out of 188 countries studied, and ranks 23rd in Africa.
The HDI is a summary measure of the average level reached in key dimensions of human development: living a long and healthy life, acquiring knowledge and enjoying a decent standard of living.

The health / longevity dimension is assessed according to life expectancy at birth. 
The size of education is measured by the number of years of schooling for adults aged 25 and over and the expected years of schooling for children of school age. 
The standard of living is measured by gross national income per capita. 
The results for the three HDI dimension indices are then aggregated to give a composite index obtained from the geometric mean.
Cameroon is outclassed in the report on the HDI 2016 by three countries in Central Africa, all of which are in the category of countries with a level of average human development:
Gabon (109th in the world and 7th in Africa), Congo (135th in the world and 13th in Africa) and Equatorial Guinea (135th in the world and 14th in Africa).

The Seychelles won the African gold award in the UNDP ranking, followed by Mauritius, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya, both of which have faced many social challenges since the so-called Arab Spring.
