2 - Level of education :
Average duration of schooling for adults over 25 and expected length of schooling for school-aged children. It reflects the satisfaction of intangible needs such as the ability to participate in decision-making at the workplace or in society.

3 - Quality of life : (logarithm of gross per capita income in purchasing power parity)
Allows to include elements of the quality of life that are not described by the first two indices such as mobility or access to culture.
