Country Similarity Index 3.0

The Country Similarity Index has yet again been revised to reflex feedback received on this project. This will be the final update to the index using data from 2020. The changes are not as significant as from 1.0 to 2.0. The third version is essentially the same as the second version, except that it has a slightly revised the formula for race, religion, lingua franca, TV broadcasting standards, and visa policy. It also fixes some minor errors in the data sets.


The articles on each country will also be expanded and changed to reflect 3.0.

  1. Hi Jeff,

    Hope you are well!

    I just came across your website and I have to say that I am very impressed with the quality of data collection and methodology used behind your country similarity index.

    I am currently working on a University project where I am aiming to group/rank the following 15 countries in terms of cultural similarities – is there any chance that you would be able to provide more insights/data to help me in my task?

    Australia
    New Zealand
    Cambodia
    Hong Kong
    Macau
    Indonesia
    India
    Korea
    Malaysia
    Brunei
    Philippines
    Singapore
    Taiwan
    Thailand
    Vietnam

    Looking forward to hearing back from you!
