México ¿cómo vamos?, INCAE Business School Business School, and the Social Progress Imperative launched the Social Progress Index of Mexico, an analysis of each state's progress taking into account three dimensions: access to basic human needs, foundations of well-being, and opportunity. According to the Social Progress Index 2021, Mexico ranks in position 68 out of 168 countries.

In the state-level results published by México, ¿cómo vamos? it stands out that:
- There is an institutional recession in personal rights compared to 2011 due to less access to justice.
- Mexico had a worse performance than the world average in access to higher education and personal security, consisting of an increase in homicides and violence, the perception of insecurity, and the presence of organized crime.

If you want to see a detailed analysis by state, a comparison with GDP growth, and data of the impacts of the pandemic in Mexico, download the report here: https://mexicocomovamos.mx/indice-de-progreso-social-2015-2020/

Yo reconozco que soy una persona muy privilegiada a nivel profesional. Todo mi vida soñé con tener un trabajo como el que tengo, un trabajo que me ha permitido crecer, aprender, conocer el mundo y posiciones tan diversas como fascinantes sobre nuestra definición de progreso, bienestar y sostenibilidad. Este año celebro ya 7 años en el Social Progress Imperative. Empecé como voluntario, luego coordinador, gerente, Gerente Global y ahora soy Director Global. Sin duda de todos estos años, este ha sido el más retador, pero en el cuál hemos visto como de mano de la innovación, el talento humano y el compromiso podemos brindar valor, información y alianzas a un mundo que cada vez necesita de datos confiables, accionables y relevantes para la toma de decisiones. Muchos y muchas de ustedes son socios y compañeros en este viaje, por lo cuál les comparto nuestro último correo del año, con nuestros logros más destacados. No sabemos que retos profesionales nos traerá este año, pero ojalá podamos seguir caminando juntos. Como siempre, mi agradecimiento a don Roberto AL por haberme motivado a unirme a esta aventura del progreso social. ---- What a year! It has been a challenging year, but it is so good to see that we have delivered our mission to the world: To use data to influence policies and investments to better serve all of humanity. In the link below, you will see and read the highlights of our work. I will mention a few of them: the 2021 Social Progress Index, The Covid Integrated Risk and Response Tool. The People’s Report: Over 17,000 underrepresented voices worldwide shared how the pandemic transformed their lives. Localized indexes: The Orange County Equity Map in California, United States. Mexico ¿Cómo Vamos?: The Mexican Social Progress Index. South Africa Youth Progress Index. I am so proud to see the expansion of our work and tools worldwide. It has not been easy, especially this year, but we made it! And we will come back stronger and even more strategic next year. My recognition to our team, staff, and Insights and Partnerships team (aka dream team) for their outstanding work. I am proud of you! Lastly, thanks to all our partners, supporters and funders. This work and achievements are yours. Let's keep making history together!

Es necesario contar con datos de calidad y actualizados sobre el COVID-19 para impulsar políticas públicas que contribuyan a una mejor gestión de la pandemia. Un nuevo documento de CIPPEC propone una herramienta para esto: cippec.org/publicacion/gestionando-con-datos-la-pandemia-por-covid-19/ El Índice de Respuesta Integrado (IRR) es un instrumento creado por Social Progress Imperative para medir el riesgo que enfrentan los territorios al abordar la gestión de la pandemia. Implementarlo en Argentina puede ser una oportunidad importante para generar un diagnóstico integral sobre esto. Un dato clave: esta herramienta necesita datos desagregados con actualizaciones frecuentes. Para ello, hay que mejorar la calidad de las fuentes disponibles y los sistemas de información actuales. Un informe previo de CIPPEC por Lucía De Zan lo explica: cippec.org/textual/los-datos-abiertos-en-la-emergencia/ ➡ Te invitamos a leer más sobre el tema en el nuevo documento de CIPPEC “Gestionando con datos la pandemia por COVID-19.
