File Created On:
June, 2016

Following the Social Protection Floors (SPFs) Recommendation No.202 adopted in 2012 establishing SPFs as a core element of social security, the Social Protection Floor Index (SPFI) has been developed. The index is part of the monitoring system for national SPFs, and measures social protection of countries in terms of access to essential health care, income security for children, persons in active age who do not earn sufficiently and older persons, taking data from different databases, such as the World Bank and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The discussion paper provides information about the SPFI from its methodology to the strengths and limitations to its results of 2012, with country rankings.
