How to use this tool

Once a country is selected, all regions with recognized benchmarks and the most recent year of each methodology’s benchmark will be displayed. Click on a Benchmark Methodology’s name to learn more about the methodology. Click on the year to be directed to the source of the benchmark. IDH recommends choosing a Full Anker Benchmark if available for your time and location.
