A new way to measure the success of our nation
We believe a vibrant economy is one that goes beyond financial returns and takes into account the wellbeing of society and everybody’s ability to thrive.
With this purpose – and input from the Vibrant Economy Commission – we sought a new way to measure the success of the economy. Our Vibrant Economy Index not only considers prosperity, but also dynamism and opportunity; inclusion and equality; health, wellbeing and happiness; resilience and sustainability; and community, trust and belonging.
The index provides:
- businesses with an understanding of their local economy and the issues that will affect investment decisions both within the business and externally
- policy-makers and place-shapers with an overview of the strengths and opportunities, challenges and weaknesses of individual places as well as the dynamic between different areas
- citizens with an accessible insight into how their place is doing, so that they can contribute to shaping local discussions about what is important to them
