Nigeria social progress index 2014

  1. 1. Social Progress Index NIGERIA 2014
  2. 2. This report is extracted from the Social Progress Index 2014 report. The focus is on Nigeria; with the aim of reviewing how progressive the country is, as reported against Africa and the rest of the World.
  3. 3. “Social Progress is defined as the capacity of a society to meet the basic human needs of its citizens, establish the building blocks that allow citizens and communities to enhance and sustain the quality of their lives, and create the conditions for all individuals to reach their full potential”. Basic Human Needs, Foundations of Wellbeing, and Opportunity
  4. 4. The Social Progress Index (SPI) framework aims to capture the level of social development within a given society. It is composed of three overall dimensions:  Basic Human Needs,  Foundations of Wellbeing, and  Opportunity. Each of these dimensions is further broken down into four underlying components: Social Progress Index Basic Human Needs Foundations of Wellbeing Opportunity Nutrition and Basic Medical Care Access to Basic Knowledge Personal Rights Water and Sanitation Access to information & Communication Personal Freedom and Choice Shelter Health and Wellness Tolerance and Inclusion Personal safety Ecosystem Sustainability Access to Advanced Education
  5. 5. Again, each underlying components are made of other entities as illustrated below.

  6. 6. SPI 3 DIMENSIONS 12 COMPONENTS 54 INDICATORS
  7. 7. THREE DIMENSIONS OF THE SOCIAL PROGRESS INDEX The SPI framework, as this definition suggests, focuses on three distinct questions: 1. Does a country provide for its people’s most essential needs? (BASIC HUMAN NEEDS) 2. Are the building blocks in place for individuals and communities to enhance and sustain wellbeing? (FOUNDATIONS OF WELLBEING) 3. Is there opportunity for all individuals to reach their full potential? (OPPORTUNITY) These three questions define the three dimensions of Social Progress: Basic Human Needs, Foundations of Wellbeing, and Opportunity.
  8. 8. SOCIAL PROGRESS INDEX 2014 REPORT  The Social Progress Index (SPI) provides evidence that extreme poverty and poor social performance often go hand-in-hand  Total country reviewed in 2014 is 132, against 50 in 2013  The top three countries in the world in terms of social progress are New Zealand (88.24), Switzerland (88.19, and Iceland (88.07)  These three countries, are relatively small in terms of populations.  The remainder of the top ten includes are Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Canada, and Australia.  The top 3 African countries are Mauritius (73.68), Botswana (65.6), and South Africa (62.96)  Mauritius is ranked 34th in the World, Botswana (57th), South Africa (69th)  Except Pakistan and Yemen, all the 29 Countries with SPI of less than 50.0 are African countries.

  15. 15. The top three countries in the world in terms of social progress are New Zealand, Switzerland, and Iceland. These three countries, closely grouped in terms of score, are relatively small in terms of populations. They score strongly across all social progress dimensions. The remainder of the top ten includes a group of Northern European nations (Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark), Canada, and Australia. Together with the top three, these countries round out a distinct “top tier” of countries in terms of social progress scores. 1ST A Second tier of countries that includes a group of 13 countries, ranging from Austria to the Czech Republic. This group includes a number of the world’s leading economies in terms of GDP and population, including five members of the G-7: Germany, the United Kingdom, Japan, the United States, and France. 2ND The next level of social progress is a Third tier of countries, ranging from Slovakia to Israel. This diverse group of nations includes countries at sharply different levels of economic development, ranging from Costa Rica (which significantly out-performs its rank in terms of GDP) to the United Arab Emirates (which has one of the highest measured GDPs per capita in the world but is ranked 37th in terms of SPI). Clearly high GDP per capita alone does not guarantee social progress. 3RD At the next, fourth, tier is a large group of approximately 50 countries ranging from Kuwait at 40th to Morocco at 91st. These countries are closely bunched in terms of their overall Social Progress Index score, but have widely differing strengths and weaknesses. 4TH A fifth tier of countries, ranging from Uzbekistan (92nd) to Pakistan (124th), registers substantially lower social progress scores than the fourth. Many of these countries also have low GDP per capita, but some are much more highly ranked on GDP per capital. 5TH Finally, a bottom tier of eight countries registers the world’s lowest levels of social progress, from Yemen (125th) to Chad (132nd). The Social Progress Index provides evidence that extreme poverty and poor social performance often go hand-in-hand. 6TH NIGERIA being the 123rd country!
