The Youth Economic Strategy (YES) Index is part of a Citi Foundation initiative that aims to inspire
policymakers, the private sector and key stakeholders to improve opportunities for youth aged 13 to 25.
The YES index, which was commissioned by the Citi Foundation and created by The Economist Intelligence
Unit, evaluates the economic environment for youth in 35 cities across the world by measuring the drivers
and enablers which promote youth economic opportunities- that is, the prospect that a young person can
improve his/her economic situation. The index is based on 31 indicators, both quantitative and qualitative
and mostly city-based, and offers a robust and comprehensive look at youth-focused policies around the
world. The research was conducted between January 2015 and May 2015.
