Abstract: In order to understand the changing conditions of young people, we have extended the Registered Indian Human Development Index methodology to create an age-specific index of well-being, and used it to compare cohorts of Registered Indians and other Canadians aged 15-29 in the 1981-2001 census years. This age-specific HDI will again capture the following three important dimensions of well-being: 1) a long and healthy life, 2) knowledge, and 3) a decent standard of living.
