PrIndex - Global Property Rights Index | Land Portal

PRIndex stands for the Global Property Rights Index, an indicator of citizens' perceptions of the security of property rights, and this page only displays the results of the first pilot and testing phase run in 2016-2017.

The pilot phase of development and testing of the index took place in nine countries (Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Greece, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Peru and Tanzania) during 2016 and 2017.

A second phase of data collection, using a new improved methodology and planned for 2018-2019, is currently on-going and new Prindex data for 15 countries are now available on

Please note that the data collected during the pilot and the data collected during the second phase are not directly comparable, due to the improvements made to the Prindex methodology. A selection of relevant indicators from the new Prindex data will soon be made available on the Land Portal too.

The Global Property Rights Index is an initiative of ODI and Land Alliance supported by Omidyar Network, DFID and other donors. It aims to fill the gap in information about individual perception of tenure security by creating a baseline global dataset to support the achievement of secure property rights around the world.

Global Land Alliance

The mission of Global Land Alliance is to enable the prosperity of people and places by advancing learning and practice to achieve land tenure security and the efficient, inclusive and sustainable use of land and natural resources.

We aim to accelerate quality development by resolving land issues with new paradigms of participation and accountability.   We are a think-and-do tank focused on resolving land issues to address four critical development challenges:

The Overseas Development Institute (ODI) is the UK's leading independent think tank on international development and humanitarian issues.


Our mission is to inspire and inform policy and practice which lead to the reduction of poverty, the alleviation of suffering and the achievement of sustainable livelihoods in developing countries.

We do this by locking together high quality applied research, practical policy advice, and policy-focused dissemination and debate.

The indicators presented here on the Land Portal represent only a fraction of the data collected and additional information about the PRIndex methodology can be found in the first PRIndex report.
