Prindex is groundbreaking

Around the world, insecure property rights prevent families from feeling confident about the future, businesses from investing, and communities from becoming more productive. Hundreds of millions of us lack property security. This makes the world poorer, less free, and less just.

There is a growing recognition of the need for change, but without accurate information, governments, business and civil society can’t understand the nature of the challenge or how to overcome it.

Prindex will provide that information, and make possible the changes that will bring about more secure, productive and dignified societies.


What we do

We survey perceptions of a representative sample of citizens, not only heads of household. Perceptions determine behaviour and make accurate comparisons of property security under different legal frameworks possible. That’s also why perceptions of property security are included in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Representative surveys allow us to include women and young adults in the land rights conversation. The Prindex 2020 global dataset covers 140 countries and finds that almost 1 billion people are living in fear of eviction.

We’re a resource for researchers, governments, entrepreneurs, and the global land rights movement.
