Combines indicators of human well-being with those of environmental stability to generate a more comprehensive picture of the state of our world. Prescott-Allen combines 39 indicators of health, population, wealth, education, communication, freedom, peace, crime and equity in a Human Wellbeing Index, and 39 indicators of land health, protected areas, water quality, water supply, global atmosphere, air quality, species diversity, energy use, and resource pressures into an Ecosystem Wellbeing Index. The two indexes are then combined into a Wellbeing/Stress Index that measures the amount of stress each country's development places on the environment. Seventy color-coded geopolitical maps vividly portray the performance of each of the 180 nations for all indexes, and the main indicators that go into them. In addition, all data are given in 160 pages of tables, and the highly accessible methodology is described in appendices so that readers can undertake their own assessments.
