Data Visualization Tools: ADB Social Protection Index
dc.description.abstractThe Social Protection Index (SPI) was developed for countries in Asia and the Pacific in 2003–2006. The index summarizes the extent of social protection in the countries, giving the Asian Development Bank and its developing members better quantitative and qualitative information on social protection activities and an internationally comparable database of social protection expenditures, coverage, distribution, and impact. This SPI database contains developing members’ annual data on social protection expenditures for Social Assistance (SA), Social Insurance (SI), and Labor Market Programs (LMP); and their respective number of beneficiaries. It also contains the basic economic and social statistics of countries relevant to SP Index calculation such as gross domestic product, population, labor force, and poverty indicators. The graphical presentation of the derived SPI for Asian Development Bank developing members in terms of SA, SI, and LMP; breadth and depth; and poor and non-poor can also viewed in this database.
