Uruguay, more prosperous by the day

Each year, Legatum Institute Foundation constructs a world prosperity index, focusing on the performance of 149 countries in categories such as health, education, economy, and social capital.

The 2016 edition of the index positioned Uruguay as the strongest overall performer in Central and South America, showing particular improvement in the categories of personal freedom and governance. The index highlights that in the last five years the country attained third place in the region with respect to per capita income growth.
