The Social Progress Index, which is published by Washington-based non-profit organization Social Progress Imperative, measures the ability of the countries to provide the social and environmental needs of their people. The well-being of the people is measured through social and environmental outcomes. The performance of the nations is judged through the areas of basic human needs, foundations of well-being and opportunity.

Basic human needs include nutrition and basic medical care, water and sanitation, shelter and personal safety. Aspects included in the foundations of well-being are access to basic knowledge, access to information and communications, health and wellness, and environmental quality. Opportunity includes personal rights, personal freedom and choice, tolerance and inclusion, and access to advanced education.
