Indicators of peaceThe Global Peace Index is a report by the Institute for Economics and Peace that measures the relative state of peace in countries and regions.

The index was compiled in consultation with an international panel of peace experts, based on data collected by the Economist Intelligence Unit.

The index was launched for the first time in May 2009, with annual reports published to show the state of the world's countries in terms of peace, security, and stability.

It should be noted that peace indicators over the past decade show a decline in general peace and security around the world, and an increase in the gap between the most peaceful and least peaceful countries.

The Global Peace Index covers 163 countries, representing 99.7 percent of the world's population. It is calculated using 23 qualitative and quantitative indicators from reliable sources.

It measures the state of peace through three domains: the level of societal safety and security, the extent of local and international conflict, and the degree of militarization.
