Kosovo Human Development Report 2004

The Rise of the Citizen: Challenges and Choices  - probes, for the first time, differences in how people in Kosovo's local administrative units, or "municipalities", are faring in terms of human development. The report provides a wealth of data explaining the patterns of development in Kosovo and how the gains and losses of recent years have affected different regions and different ethnic, demographic and even age groups. The picture, unsurprisingly, is a varied one with pockets of prosperity, along-side pockets of extreme vulnerability. The Human Development Survey (HDS) for this report covered 6,000 households and more than 39,000 individuals across all 30 municipalities. The HDS effectively establishes a baseline of indicators for all municipalities in Kosovo. Local decision-makers and other domestic and international stakeholders can also make use of accurate data categorized by municipality on: life expectancy, adult literacy, mean years of schooling, percentage of people without tap water, percentage of unemployed people, percentage of people living below the poverty line, percentage of people without access to economic resources, household demographics, and average household income and expenditures.
