The KOF Index of Globalization is published annually by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. The index, which assesses the degree of globalization in nations around the world, is based on three principal criteria. These are social political and economic.

The Social globalization is measured in three categories. The first among these is to measure the cross border personal contacts. This includes letters, telephone calls, size of the resident foreign population and tourist flows. The second is measuring cross border information. This is in regard to access to foreign press products, TV and the Internet. The third is to measure the cultural closeness to the global mainstream.

According to the 2017 KOF Index of Globalization, Singapore is ranked at the top in the social globalization sub-index. The nation had a score of 91.61. The European nation of Switzerland was the second most socially globalized nation in 2017 and had a score of 91.13. Coming at the third spot was Ireland with a score of 90.99. Other nations that had scores of more than 80 were Belgium, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Qatar, Spain and some other nations.

Countries which had scores between 60 and 80 included the United States, New Zealand, Japan, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Romania, Lebanon, Ukraine and other nations.
