Measuring Peace

We believe that data and fact based research are the first step in creating a more peaceful future.

Peace. If you can’t measure it, how can you understand it?

Measuring peace at the global and national level allows us to assess the social, political and economic factors that create peace.

Each year the Institute for Economics and Peace produces the Global Peace Index, the world’s leading measure of national peacefulness, ranking 163 countries according to their levels of peace. The GPI presents the most comprehensive data driven analysis to-date on trends in peace, its economic
value, and how to develop peaceful societies.

A series of national peace indices have also been developed to explore the fabric of peace at the sub-national level. These include: the Mexico Peace Index , US Peace IndexUK Peace Index and the German Peace Index.
