The 2016 Legatum Prosperity Index is here

09 November 2016, Legatum Institute

How do people flourish? Why are some nations more prosperous than others and how do poorer communities transition from poverty to increasing prosperity? As a measurement of prosperity, The Legatum Prosperity Index™ is unique. It gives a far truer picture of the life chances for the world’s population, and the performance of nations, than any Index of GDP alone could hope to. True prosperity is as much about well-being as wealth and New Zealand, which tops the Index, is a model for delivering both.
