Dr. Amit Kapoor was a part of the sixth virtual meeting on “Beyond GDP Sprint 2023” on September 21, 2023. This meeting discusses one of the hardest and most contentious topics within the Beyond GDP arena, which is the relative benefits and trade-offs between dashboards and composite (single measure) indices. Composite indices can be simpler to interpret or communicate but run the risk of
over-simplifying complex issues. This meeting will present new composite indices and include a discussion of best practices in developing composite indices and the latest innovations and potential approaches.
