Measuring young people’s quality of life globally!
The Youth Progress Index is one of the first instruments developed to give the full story of what life is like for a young person today, independent of economic indicators.
It brings together reliable, relevant data to give each country a score on how well different countries meet Basic Human Needs, Foundations of Wellbeing, and Opportunity.
Knowledge is power!
By measuring a range of key criteria, the Youth Progress Index provides a unique insight into the progress countries are making to empower their young people.
Through the Youth Progress Index, we can find out the answers to important questions:
- Are young people able to exercise their socioeconomic and political rights?
- Do they live in a community where they feel included?
- Do they have access to housing?
Once we understand what life is like for a young person in different contexts around the world, we can start to better understand what policies work and what needs to change.
