The Social Progress Imperative is an organisation devoted to advancing human wellbeing by combining national social performance and capacity indicators with solutions-oriented outreach to sector leaders, and grassroots champions, in order to promote long-term, large-scale change.
On Tuesday 8 April, the Social Progress Imperative is launching its Social Progress Index 2014 at the Deloitte Auditorium. The Social Progress Index is an annual review that measures the performance of countries in terms of the quality of life of their citizens, using indicators of social and environmental outcomes exclusively. To effectively tackle the economic and social problems that challenge national stability and growth, both social and environmental factors must be measured. Covering critical issues such as healthcare, infrastructure and civil liberties, the Index benchmarks country performance to drive forward national debate and help prioritize investment decisions, and provides an invaluable framework for measuring the multiple dimensions of social progress.
