Common criteria for evaluating a country's degree of development are per capita income or gross domestic product (GDP), level of industrialization, general standard of living, and the amount of widespread infrastructure. Noneconomic factors, such as the Human Development Index (HDI), which quantifies a country's levels of education, literacy and health into a single figure, can also be included in evaluating an economy or country's degree of development. BREAKING DOWN 'Developed Economy' The most well-known current examples of developed countries include the United States, Canada and most of western Europe, including the United Kingdom and France.

The net migration rate indicates the contribution of migration to the overall level of population change.

High levels of migration can cause problems such as increasing unemployment and potential ethnic strife (if people are coming in) or a reduction in the labor force, perhaps in certain key sectors (if people are leaving).
