Natoli, Riccardo and Zuhair, Segu (2010) Establishing the RIE index: a review of the components critical to progress measurement. International Journal of Social Economics, 37 (8). pp. 574-591. ISSN 0306-8293


Purpose – The main purpose of this paper is to propose a progress framework revolving around the utilisation of three key constructs: resources, infrastructure and environment (index). Design/methodology/approach – This paper utilises a composite indicator and an interdisciplinary approach to construct a comprehensive measure of progress. Findings – The findings reveal that the methodological approach employed above allows components that are vital to progress to be incorporated into a coherent framework. Research limitations/implications – The proposed progress framework could be applied to countries, or act as a foundation for future progress measures. It is also hoped to promote interdisciplinary research between schools. Originality/value – The paper proposes an alternative measure of progress for nations that has the capability to capture more aspects important to progress.
