  • Description:

    The SPCI measures the gap between the Sen’s Welfare Index (GDP per capita adjusted by income inequality) for any given country with respect to the average Sen’s index of the top ten global performers. The SPCI is based on the Sen’s Welfare Index (Sen 1976), which is calculated as the mean income (y) times one minus the Gini coefficient (G), that is, SPCI=y(G-1) The Sen’s Welfare Index benchmark is the equity-adjusted per capita GDP derived from the population-weighted average of the Sen’s Welfare Index of the top ten countries in 2000 (Norway, Switzerland, Denmark, Netherlands, United States, Ireland, Austria, Sweden, Germany, Finland).
