Alden Chazan wins BA Global Data Lab prize

1 December 2022

In his bachelor thesis at Nijmegen School of Management, Alden Chazan investigated the relationship between the International Wealth Index and democracy in developing countries. He argued that the GDP (gross domestic product) as a measurement of welfare is limited, especially when it is used in a dataset with developing countries.

Therefore, he used the International Wealth Index from the Global Data Lab. This indicator is the first asset-based indicator that is comparable across countries and time.

Alden recently received our first BA Global Data Lab (GDL) prize! Congratulations, we are very proud and look forward to your next steps.
