Journal of Institutional studies, , Vol. 4 (no. 1),
p. 68-78

The author analyzes the problem of measuring human development in the aspect of limiting access to its resources. Human potential is considered as a complex trait that reflects not only the accumulated resources and the individual qualities, but in the wide sense describes his «social well-being». It is shown that the developed cross-country comparisons of the human development index (HDI) and index (IPA) have several drawbacks and are not suitable for the analysis of the situation in the country. To isolate the deprived population groups requiring special attention and special social policies proposed measure, which was built taking into account the Russian specifics and tested on Russian data. Comprehensive assessment of limiting access to resources has shown that the most vulnerable groups are families with children (especially the large and incomplete), which is undoubtedly in the future, adversely affect the quality of human potential.
