The 2015 Brookings Financial and Digital Inclusion Project Report

Measuring progress on financial access and usage

John Villasenor, Darrell M. West, and Robin Lewis

The 2015 Brookings Financial and Digital Inclusion Project (FDIP) Report evaluates access to and usage of affordable financial services across 21 geographically, politically, and economically diverse countries.

The first annual FDIP report seeks to answer a set of fundamental questions about today’s global financial inclusion efforts, including: 1) Do country commitments make a difference in progress toward financial inclusion?; 2) To what extent do mobile and other digital technologies advance financial inclusion?; and 3) What legal, policy, and regulatory approaches promote financial inclusion?

The FDIP team assessed the 2015 FDIP countries’ financial inclusion landscapes based on 33 indicators spanning four dimensions: country commitment, mobile capacity, regulatory environment, and adoption of selected traditional and digital financial services.

Use the interactive scorecard below to explore overall, dimension, and indicator scores for the 21 countries. Note that the larger the proportion of blue shown within each circle, the greater the indicator score (bearing in mind that certain indicators are scored out of 1 or 3, while others are scored out of 1, 2, or 3).
