Now in its sixth year, the Global Peace Index (GPI) measures the peacefulness of countries based on a scoring model that uses 23 indicators to rank 158 countries by their relative states of peace. The selected indicators are the best available data sets that reflect the incidence or absence of peace. They contain both quantitative data and qualitative scores from a range of trusted sources. The GPI is produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), guided by an international expert panel of independent experts and supported by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), which collates the data and calculates the rankings in conjunction with the IEP.1
