Growth Monitor

Main Research Area:

The Liechtenstein Institute’s "Growth Monitor" analyzes relevant and available economic data that depict the long-term growth development of the Liechtenstein economy from various perspectives. It is designed according to the view that prosperity is a multidimensional concept. In addition to classical economic indicators, measures that capture aspects such as living conditions or resource consumption are also important for the long-term developments of an economy. The Growth Monitor thus captures not only financial prosperity, but also perceived welfare. The presentation in terms of a system of indicators is intended to enable a systematic assessment of Liechtenstein’s long-term growth development and is made visible and easy interpretable by a traffic light system. Currently, the Growth Monitor comprises a set of more than 70 indicators, which are evaluated in terms of situation and trend.

The Growth Monitor was first published in 2020. The Growth Monitor is published annually in winter and is a module of the "Applied Economic Analysis", which is supported by the government of the Principality of Liechtenstein.

Project duration: since 2020
