Abstract

International indexes are developed in order to monitor the conditions, under different sizes and from different perspectives, of the different countries. For an index to be considered robust, it must strictly comply with the conditions defined and shared by the world's major statistical organizations. Compliance with certain parameters is essential if the index is to faithfully reflect a certain reality. The scope of statistical methods used to construct indexes is wide. It is possible to identify multiple types of indexes with an international dimension, used to measure performance in geographical areas, countries or regions. The main areas for which indexes are constructed include health, education and culture, agriculture and development, gender, environment, poverty and deprivation, science, technology and digital development, democracy and freedom. An analysis based on quantitative statistical tools is the starting point for the definition of public policies at various levels of government, as well as a valid way of monitoring the entire process of development and their impact in economic and social terms. Moreover, the indexes play a very important communicative role; the data, presented through suitable visual and tabular supports, is an effective vehicle of information to the public.
