Youth Progress Index

Measuring young people's quality of life globally!

The Youth Progress Index is one of the first instruments developed to give the full story of what life is like for a young person today, independent of economic indicators.

It brings together reliable, relevant data to give each country a score on how well different countries meet Basic Human Needs, Foundations of Wellbeing, and Opportunity.

Youth Progress Index 2023

The Youth Progress Index 2023 provides you a deep dive into the state of young people’s wellbeing, access to rights, and quality of living.

You can find out what it's like to be a young person today, which countries managed to improve the living conditions for young people between 2011-2022 and which on the other hand haven't made any progress.

Knowledge is power!

By measuring a range of key criteria, the Youth Progress Index provides a unique insight into the progress countries are making to empower their young people.

Through the Youth Progress Index, we can find out the answers to important questions:

  • Are young people able to exercise their socioeconomic and political rights?
  • Do they live in a community where they feel included?
  • Do they have access to housing?

Once we understand what life is like for a young person in different contexts around the world, we can start to better understand what policies work and what needs to change.
