Interactive graphic: How nations compete on technology, innovation, and financial development

Each year, the World Economic Forum produces its Global Competitiveness Report, a comprehensive assessment of economic competitiveness across the globe. Each country’s relative economic strength is determined by analyzing twelve pillars–including capacity to innovate, infrastructure, and health factors–that produce 114 unique indicators. Those indicators make up the Global Competitiveness Index, a global ranking that looks to shed light on the drivers contributing to national productivity and prosperity.

The interactive map above explores this year’s Competitiveness Index by highlighting country-level rankings for select indicators and comparing the most globally and regionally competitive countries. The data presented has long served as an important tool for economic policymakers, and will contribute to the discussions taking place at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos this week.
