The Economic Complexity Index (ECI) measures the productive capacities of a locality (e.g. state or municipality) based on the presence of activities (e.g. employment, industries or exports) in that and other localities. The economic complexity of a locality predicts its income level, economic growth, inequality, and greenhouse gas emissions. The ECI can be estimated using data on exports, employment, patents, etc., so the estimates differ according to the data and the thresholds used. This economically complex explorer allows you to calculate the ECI with different data sources and thresholds.
The Product Complexity Index (PCI) is a measure of the complexity required to develop an economic activity (e.g. industry, product or occupation). Its value correlates with spatial concentration and income from economic activities. The PCI can be estimated with data on exports, employment, patents, etc. so their values differ according to the data and thresholds used. This explorer allows you to calculate PCI with different thresholds and data sources.
