Sri Lanka is ahead of Brazil (79), China (91), and several Eastern European countries - Serbia (77), Ukraine (83), Macedonia (84), Bosnia (86), Armenia (87).

"Sri Lanka's Human Development Index (HDI) has progressively increased up to 0.750 in 2014 compared to 0.513 in 1980.

The country, up by two notches from last year's rank, is placed at the 73rd position, the highest among the nine South Asian countries, in the index that is a composite national measure of health, education, and income for 187 countries.

The average HDI value for the Asia region, at 0.588, is below the world average of 0.702 and only Sri Lanka in the South Asian region is above the average.

"Sri Lanka, which shares a colonial history similar to that of India and the rest of the subcontinent, achieved nearly universal education and health care despite years of militancy and war," the 2014 report said.

The report has considered Sri Lanka's favorable social indicators of literacy, life expectancy and year of schooling to place the country in the High Human Development group."
