    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.

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.
