Abstract: Straipsnyje sisteminami labiausiai paplitę, tačiau kritikuotini valstybės pažangos (vystymosi) matavimo rodikliai. Eigoje siūloma alternatyvi – pagrindinius kritikuotinų rodiklių trūkumus švelninanti ir naujus, svarbius rodiklius apimanti, valstybės vystymosi matavimo metodika – kuria remiantis galima nustatyti atskiros šalies išsivystymą. Tai Visuotinis Pažangos indeksas (VPI) - kuris šalies pažangą matuoja per ekonominę, socialinę, politinę bei aplinkos prizmes
