The 2020 edition of the AVRI assesses 30 countries and jurisdictions. This includes the addition of five new countries and jurisdictions to the roster from 2019, and can explain some of the downward movement of some countries as a result. The AVRI uses 28 different measures, organized into four pillars: policy and legislation, technology and innovation, infrastructure and consumer acceptance. Four of the variables are scored for this index by KPMG International and ESI ThoughtLab and 24 draw on existing research by KPMG International and other organizations. Details can be found in the Appendix of the full report (PDF 3.2 MB).
