Each country’s relative economic strength is determined by analyzing twelve pillars–including capacity to innovate, infrastructure, and health factors–that produce 114 unique indicators.

Those indicators make up the Global Competitiveness Index, a global ranking that looks to shed light on the drivers contributing to national productivity and prosperity.
