Country Indexes: New Releases and a Recent Launch

Cottrill Research has been monitoring and curating an Index collection specifically for supply markets for a number of years now. It has been insightful to watch what has and is trending. This indicates which markets, spend categories, and activities are emerging in importance in both the private and public sectors. Indexes represent a particular type of data measurement, especially as benchmarks for price fluctuations, quantity and production of goods and services, worldwide economies, as well as indicating geopolitical, environmental, and supplier risk intensity. Still trending heavily are indexes that measure country, national, and regional risk (geopolitical, economic, environmental, social, among others). Here are recent launches and new version releases to note:

ACLED Conflict Severity Index – This new launch assesses four key indicators to identify the most severe forms of conflict and where they occur. “At the start of 2023, 46 countries and territories meet the criteria of at least one severity indicator. Of these, 19 currently meet the Index’s criteria for high or extreme levels of conflict severity.”

Corruption Perceptions Index  (CPI) – Transparency International’s CPI was started in 1995 and this most recent release (January 2022), ranks 180 countries and territories around the world by their perceived levels of public sector corruption.

Government AI Readiness Index – Produced by Oxford Insights, 181 countries are measured on how ready their government is to implement AI in the delivery of public services to their citizens. The Index measures 39 indicators across 10 dimensions, and 3 pillars: Government, Technology Sector, and Data & Infrastructure.

EIU Democracy Index – With a new release last week, this annual survey rates the state of democracy across 167 countries using five measures: 1) electoral process and pluralism, 2) the functioning of government, 3) political participation, 4) democratic political culture, and 5) civil liberties.

Human Freedom Index – Co-published by the Cato Institute and the Fraser Institute, this eighth annual index presents the state of human freedom in the world and uses 83 distinct indicators of personal and economic freedom.

Global Hunger Index – This peer-reviewed annual report is published by Concern Worldwide and Welthungerhilfe and is designed to comprehensively measure and track hunger at the global, regional, and country levels.
