Commonwealth Youth Development Index Launched


YOUTH DEVELOPMENT CANNOT BE COUNTED BY ONE METRIC ALONE; IT CAN ONLY BE APPROXIMATED THROUGH A COMPOSITE MEASURE THAT CAPTURES THE MANY DIMENSIONS WHICH ENABLE YOUNG PEOPLE TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL.


About the reports

The Commonwealth Youth Development Index Results Report (YDI Report) identifies and analyses key trends in youth development across the Commonwealth. The report lists the key findings and provides a breakdown of youth development according to each of the indicators. It explores the key factors that correlate with youth development, not just in the Commonwealth, but around the world.


The YDI Methodology Report provides a thorough explanation of the methodology and construction of the index, as well as the rationale behind each of the indicators. It shows how each indicator is weighed and where the data was sourced from.
