Sustainable Governance Indicators
The Sustainable Governance Indicators (SGI) examine governance and policymaking in the 41 OECD member states in order to evaluate each country’s need for and ability to carry out reform. Similar to the Bertelsmann Stiftung’s Transformation Index (BTI), the SGI are divided into a Status Index and Management Index, which are calculated using quantitative data from international organizations and then supplemented by qualitative assessments from recognized country experts. The latest release of the SGI, which are updated every two years, took place in March 2011.
