    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.

    Inclusive Wealth Index

    The inclusive wealth index measures all the assets from which human well-being is derived, including manufactured, human and natural capital, i.e. a nation’s capacity to maintain human well-being over time.

    Index of Social Health

    "The Index of Social Health [...] monitors the social well-being of American society. [...] The Index of Social Health is based on sixteen social indicators. These are: infant mortality, child abuse, child poverty, teenage suicide, teenage drug abuse, high school dropouts, unemployment, weekly wages, health insurance coverage, poverty among the elderly, out-of-pocket health-care costs among the elderly, homicides, alcohol-related traffic fatalities, food insecurity, affordable housing, and income inequality."

    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.
