    Status Index

    "The Status Index, with its two analytic dimensions – one assessing the state of political transformation, the other the state of economic transformation – identifies where each of the 129 countries stand on their path toward democracy under the rule of law and a market economy anchored in principles of social justice."

    "The Bertelsmann Stiftung’s Transformation Index (BTI) analyzes and evaluates whether and how developing countries and countries in transition are steering social change toward democracy and a market economy."

    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.

    Freedom of Expression and Belief

    Freedom of belief is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or community, in public or private, to manifest religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship, and observance; the concept is generally recognized also to include the freedom to change religion or not to follow any religion (Art. 18, Universal Declaration of Human Rights).
