Social Protection Floor Index: Monitoring National Social Protection Policy Implementation

The Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors, a network of almost 90 NGOs and trade unions organisation worldwide, is happy to announce The Social Protection Floor Index (SPFI). The Index was developed by a group of master students from the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance under the supervision of Michael Cichon.

The Index (SPFI) is a composite indicator based on the SPFs Recommendation No.202, which serves as a conceptual framework. It measures the potential costs (in % of GDP) to close gaps in the national social protection floor (gaps in income security and health security).
