The fifth edition of the Smart Centres Index was published on 24 May 2022. SCI 5 rates the innovation and technology offerings of leading commercial centres, tracking their ability to create, develop, and deploy technology.
The SCI is a factor assessment index, combining a number of instrumental factors - data measures drawn from a range of data providers across the world - and assessments given by business and finance professionals of three dimensions related to innovation and technology in major commercial and financial centres:
131 commercial and financial centres were researched for SCI 5 of which 76 are included in the index. SCI 5 was compiled using 134 instrumental factors. These quantitative measures are provided by third parties including the World Bank, The Economist Intelligence Unit, the OECD, and the United Nations.
The instrumental factors are combined with financial centre assessments provided by respondents to the SCI online questionnaire. SCI 5 uses 2,083 assessments provided by 296 respondents.
