Since 2007, the Legatum Prosperity Index™ has evaluated long-term changes in global prosperity, pinpointing drivers of progress and highlighting those nations that have made the greatest strides forward.
The 2023 Index will be launched at this event.
National success is about more than just wealth. And yet, traditionally we have used narrow measures of wealth, such as GDP, as our benchmark to determine the success of nations.

The Index assesses the performance of 167 countries across 12 pillars, underpinned by 67 policy-focused elements, to provide a comprehensive and holistic picture of prosperity.
