The research, BCG says, is based on proprietary Sustainable Economic Development Assessment (SEDA) – an analysis which provides a comprehensive diagnostic tool that assesses the relative well-being of countries.

In its report, the BCG's 2018 Sustainable Economic Development Assessment (SEDA) reveals that countries can make the overall welfare of citizens the top priority while promoting sustainable and robust economic growth.
