The Social Progress Imperative is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people around the world, particularly the least well off, by advancing global social progress. Our robust, holistic and innovative measurement tool–the Social Progress Index–measures how healthy, safe and free citizens are. The index and our growing global network empower local actors to both identify shortcomings and deliver the solutions to improve them.
Central to our mission is the idea that good data is the ultimate driver of development, because what we measure guides the choices we make: good data informs good development decisions. We are committed not just to measuring progress but playing an active role in advancing it. Our expanding network unites innovators across sectors to measure and advance social progress in their region.
