Abstract

The countries' development levels have been handled differently until today, especially after the Industrial Revolution; the countries' development has been tried to be measured by the gross domestic product amounts. This is especially true of II. It has been criticized a lot with the understanding of human rights that developed after World War II, and the Human Development Report was published for the first time in 1990 by the United Nations. Although the Human Development Index calculations included in this report have been criticized in many different ways, they have been deemed necessary on the basis that they are based on a new understanding of development and development. Based on the calculations made with this index, the relationship of human development with many different factors has been examined. In this study, the relationship between human development and working hours has been analyzed using the Generalized Estimation Equations method. In the study, the data of 35 countries that are members of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development between 2010-2017 were used. As a result of the study, an inverse relationship between working hours and human development index components was determined. These findings make the current understanding of work controversial. At this point, it is clear that a new productivity-oriented paradigm is needed in individual and social life.
