POL, María Albina. Human Development in argentine provinces 2004-2008: A view from the territorial approach. Polis [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.28, pp.501-523. ISSN 0718-6568.

The freedoms that people have are conditioned by the environment in which they operate daily. Thus, the territory constitutes itself in the determinant of the space of opportunities from which each individual can choose. This leads to emphasize the importance of examining human capabilities within specific geographic entities. The article goes back to the Territorial Human Development Index (TDHI), measure elaborated in order to increase the validity of the HDI-UNDP to give account of the spatial gaps, at subnational scale, and some modifications are applied in order to have an updated and more rigorous approximation to the human development overview in the argentine provinces. First, the paper describes the methodological adjustments made to THDI. Then, the results of its application to the Argentine provinces are presented, describing the evolution experienced by human development at two points in time (2004-2008).

Palabras clave : human development; territory; argentine provinces.
