A retrospective Economic Vulnerability Index

The Economic Vulnerability Index (EVI), built by the United Nations with the contribution of the FERDI (see LDC program), is available in an updated retrospective version.

The Economic Vulnerability Index (EVI) is available in a retrospective version based on the new definition of the index adopted in 2015 for the LDC Review by the United Nations - DESA - CDP. 

Sosso Feindouno and Michaël Goujon have computed an annual retrospective EVI, covering the period 1990-2013 for 145 developing countries.

It complements the previous work of Patrick Guillaumont and Joël Cariolle in 2011 who built an annual retrospective EVI series covering the period 1975-2008 for 128 developing countries based on the 2006-09 UN-CDP definition of the EVI.

Build Your Own Economic Vulnerability Index

In December 2014 FERDI launched an innovative tool for building your own Economic Vulnerability Index.

The "build your index" website uses retrospective EVI data that the FERDI regularly produces and makes available to the public on its website. The current series cover 145 developing countries from the 1970s to 2016.
