The use of indices to measure changes in countries across different policy areas is becoming increasingly frequent. From human rights to conflict, from governance to gender, many organizations have invested in developing statistical models that derive data from multiple sources and rank countries according to their score.
IPI’s Global Observatory provides the first list of country indices available in open-sources. It reviews thirty indices and provides a description of the methodology and results.
In addition, the Global Observatory has prepared an interactive world map (beta version) that shows data from all thirty different indices. Users can also see results from combined indices in different thematic categories.
