Several prominent studies have been conducted to test the causality of institutional quality on income growth. However, income growth only partially captures the living standard. Many economists, including the noble laureate Amartya Sen, proposed Human Development Index (HDI), as a more comprehensive indicator to capture living standard.

The result of this study showed that institutional quality, as indicated by governance and democratic quality are having significance positive impact on HDI. Under the Fixed Effect scenario, 3 years lags governance is employed, and the result show that governance and democratic quality are remain positively significance on HDI.
