The rankings are scored between 0 and 1, with 1 being the highest. Scores are given across six domains of youths’ lives: citizen participation, economic opportunity, education, health, information and communications technology, and safety and security. The overall score is a weighted composite of the 6 domain scores. The domains are comprised of 40 indicators encompassing the enabling environment in which youth live and participate, youth outcome specific indicators, and youths’ outlook and satisfaction with their own wellbeing. The results are broken into four performance based tiers- high, upper-middle, lower-middle, and low.
