The IF Intergenerational Fairness Index: 2014 Edition

This is the second annual update to the original edition of the Intergenerational Fairness Index, IF’s pioneering attempt to measure intergenerational unfairness in the UK. Further developing the measures established by the previous Editions, this piece of research found that the prospects of young people appear to be worsening across a range of key areas, including government debt, housing costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Overall, there were improvements in just three of the indicators compared to the 2013 Edition, which shows the challenge that lies ahead of us if we are serious about tackling injustice towards younger and future generations.
