We are very grateful to the following advisors, whose guidance and support was invaluable in the original construction of the Index in 2019. We are also grateful to Mark Lopez, from Pew Research, who helped with the refresh of the Personal Freedom pillar in 2022.
A diverse range of experts contributed to the Index construction phase, from academics, to researchers, and policy leads from a variety of universities and organizations across the United States. This broad collaboration enabled a comprehensive range of views to be captured and ensured the best outcome at each stage of the construction process. The Legatum Institute synthesized all the expert views to reach a final Index framework in 2019, and therefore the views expressed are those of the Institute and do not necessarily reflect the individual views of the advisors.
