Human Development Index By Region In South Asia

There are stark regional divisions in standard of living across South Asia. It is the least homogeneous region in the world in that respect. The fact that Sri Lanka is near the top, despite the fact that it had almost as long of a civil war as Afghanistan, which is near the bottom, in recent history, is particularly notable.
