A FEW WORDS FROM OUR NERDS (HOW WE COMPILED THIS INDEX).

The index is built with hard data by men and women who spend their lives engaged in statistical modeling. (Don’t feel bad, they make good money and also have hobbies.) The nature of their work is that they are experts in unearthing, evaluating and analyzing data – and making the outputs of that data intelligible to people who don’t have degrees in data science. The WRI team reviews and evaluates data sources daily, updating the algorithm as necessary, always with an eye towards improving the accuracy and predictiveness of the model.
