About Social Progress Imperative

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.
