Why is Rank and Index Important?

Every year, different organization/ agency releases a list of countries with the ranking and Index in different global parameters. These different global indicators and rankings indicate the performance of a country by measuring various socio-economic indicators or factors as well as political indicators.

Here are some reasons why rank and index are important for India:

  • India’s progress and development. By comparing India’s ranking on different indexes over time, we can see how the country is doing relative to other countries in the world.
  • Identify areas where India needs to improve. For example, if India ranks low on the Global Hunger Index, this could indicate that the country needs to do more to improve food security and reduce food wastage.
  • Attracting foreign investment and tourism. Companies and tourists are more likely to want to invest in and visit countries that rank high on global indexes, such as the Human Development Index and the Ease of Doing Business Index.
  • Maintain India’s reputation in the world. When India ranks high on global indexes, it shows that the country is a good place to live, work, and do business.
