Structural disarticulation that entails uneven sectoral development has increasingly become one of the biggest stumbling blocks in the Third World development process. Specifically, it has contributed greatly to the lack of correspondence between economic and social development. This article provides a quantitative cross national assessment of the impact of structural disarticulation on human development. Results indicate that structural disarticulation exhibits a strong negative effect on human development net of (1) the development level; (2) state size and state strength; and (3) major forms of economic dependency such as foreign trade, foreing direct investment, and external indebtedness.
