How the index works
The NTI Index tracks country-level progress on nuclear security by assessing overall nuclear security conditions across five broad categories, with 20 indicators and 61 subindicators.
Nuclear materials have the potential to unleash massive amounts of energy through a process called nuclear fission, and it only takes a small amount of plutonium or highly enriched uranium to build a bomb.
In developing the NTI Index, the EIU and NTI convened highly respected nuclear security experts with a broad range of expertise from countries around the world.
