    (subindexes): Economic Participation and Opportunity, Educational Attainment, Health and Survival and

    Human Wellbeing Index

    The HWI is designed to be a more holistic measure of socioeconomic conditions than narrow monetary indicators such as the Gross Domestic Product. It covers more aspects of human wellbeing than the United Nations’ Human Development Index.

    It is the unweighted average of indices of health and population, wealth, knowledge, community and equity. To prevent a high score for equity from offsetting poor human conditions, equity is included in the HWI only when it does not raise the index.

    Social Progress Index

    The Social Progress Index is an aggregate index of social and environmental indicators that capture three dimensions of social progress: Basic Human Needs, Foundations of Wellbeing, and Opportunity. The Index measures social progress strictly using outcomes of success, not how much effort a country makes. For example, how much a country spends on healthcare is much less important than the health and wellness actually achieved by that country, which is what outcomes measure.

    Legatum Prosperity Index

    The Prosperity Index is a global measurement of prosperity based on both income and wellbeing. The Index analysed the countries across 8 sub-indices – Economy, Entrepreneurship & Opportunity, Governance, Education, Health, Safety & Security, Personal Freedom and Social Capital.
