Global Youth Wellbeing Index
The inaugural Global Youth Wellbeing Index gathers and connects youth-related data to assess and compare the state of young people’s wellbeing around the world. The Index is designed to facilitate both thought and action by elevating youth needs and opportunities and young people’s participation on national and global agendas. It also provides public and private sector decision-makers an easier way to understand the big picture, guide actions and investments, and drive progress over time. The Index ranks 30 high- to low-income countries in five regions that represent nearly 70 percent of the world’s youth.
