The KOF Globalization Index measures the three main dimensions of globalization:
- and political.
In addition to three indices measuring these dimensions, we calculate an overall index of globalization and sub-indices referring to
- actual economic flows
- economic restrictions
- data on information flows
- data on personal contact
- and data on cultural proximity.
Data are available on a yearly basis for 207 countries over the period 1970 – 2013.
The website offers interactive features such as maps and queries and the ability to download raw index data.
