The human development index is just a statistic of a country that takes a lot of things into account. For example life expectancy, education and income. I don't know if there are other things that are also taken into account.

Rural deprivation just means that there's a lack of material benefits which are basic necessities in a rural area.

I presume you're doing Edexcel Unit 2, I took that exam in January so if you need any help feel free to inbox me :)

human deveopment index (HDI) is a measure of development that is considered pretty accurate and inlcudes things like life expectancy (health), GDP (income) and adult literacy (education)

i'm not sure about the other one but i hope this helps
