Credible and Useful
The Social Progress Index is based on a range of social and environmental outcome indicators organized within three dimensions of social progress: Basic Human Needs, Foundations of Wellbeing, and Opportunity.
The index has been adapted to assess social progress across various geographies and contexts, including regions, states, cities, and even districts in the same city.
Each day, supporters from all corners of the world are joining the movement to measure and improve social progress at home and abroad.
