Ten areas were assessed to achieve the 2018 Sustainable Economic Development Assessment (SEDA): economic growth (gross domestic product), economic stability, labor market situation (unemployment), healthcare quality, infrastructure (transport and Internet connection), public administration, education and the environment, and the status of so-called civil society.
Publicly available data was used to compile the rankings which landed the Czech Republic in the 25th position with a score of 71.1 percent, scoring well in the criteria of equality (income or access to education), economic stability and the quality of health care – negatives were the relatively lower level of earnings (assets) and the quality of the environment.
The Czech Republic outranked Italy, Portugal, Estonia, Poland, and Slovakia.
Only three non-European states, Singapore (no.7), Australia (no. 13), and New Zealand (no.14) ranked in the top fifteen, according to the SEDA index.
Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Luxembourg, and Denmark comprised the top five, respectively.
