This is the largest youth generation ever to exist.
Half of the world’s population is now under the age of 25, and 1.8 billion people are between the ages of 10 and 25. Despite their booming prevalence, there are few measurements that target specifically the quality of life of the youth demographic. The Global Youth Wellbeing Index hopes to provide baseline data so that countries can be compared and progress can be tracked. The index tracks six key categories and ranks countries with a score from 0-1.
- Citizen Participation
- Economic Opportunity
- Information and Technology
- Safety and Security
