PRIndex – The global indicator on citizens' perceptions of property rights launching expanded coverage in 2018

PRIndex will collect data from 36 countries in 2018 to help citizens secure their rights to homes and land

After two years of rigorous testing, Land Alliance and the Overseas Development Institute are expanding a first-of-its-kind global dataset and index on perceptions of property rights, called the Global Property Rights Index (PRIndex). With seed funding from Omidyar Network and the UK’s Department for International Development, PRIndex is a baseline, multi-national dataset measuring how secure people feel about their rights to the land and property on which they live and work. This data will provide the grounding for a global conversation and movement around securing the property rights of billions who currently lack them, and has the potential to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
