Ireland Ranks No.1 on The Good Country Index

By Orla Spencer

We always knew that Ireland is a great nation but a recent study headed by Simon Anholt is adding more weight to this statement!

He and his team have come up with the Good Country Index and at present Ireland ranks at number 1. This makes us here at The Irish Tourism Group very proud!

The Good Country Index

The Good Country Index categorises countries according to their contribution to humanity using 35 indicators with data compiled from the United Nations, the World Bank and other institutions. This data is spread across seven categories which are Science and Technology, Culture, International Peace and Security, World Order, Planet and Climate, Prosperity and Equality, Health and Wellbeing.
