Economic Risk Index

Economic Risk Index

The Economic Risk Indices (ERI) are a collection of risk indices that enable insights into future economic activity at different aggregate levels – such as by geographic region or by industry. Leveraging our curated datasets and proprietary health risk indices, the ERI quantifies the impact of social and environmental factors on population health and correlates that impact with key market indictors.

Our innovative ERI allows industry to anticipate, prepare for, and take advantage of any shocks to economic activity from health risks at global, national, and local levels.
