The Social Progress Index asks universally important questions about the success of society that measures of economic progress cannot alone address. The Index helps answer those questions with verifiable, credible, and contextually relevant indicators. It integrates a multitude of local, state, and federal data sources using the Social Progress Index methodology to develop a better understanding of a community.
