Composite Indicators: An Introduction to Their Development and Use


A composite indicator (or index) combines two or more data sources into a single measure. From the Self-Reliance Metrics to the CSO Sustainability Index, composite indicators are everywhere at USAID. They are in our Country Development Cooperation Strategies and in the Activity Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning plans.

This webinar provides a brief introduction to how composite indicators are developed, what to look for when reviewing a composite indicator, and where to find out more about composite indicators. M&E Specialists, Strategic Planners, COR/AORs, and anyone else who wants an introduction to what goes into a composite indicator will benefit from this webinar.
