''Measuring financial inclusion''
( 2015, Vol. 35 No.1 )
 
 
Using a distance-based approach, this paper proposes an index of financial inclusion (IFI) – a measure of inclusiveness of a financial system that incorporates information on various dimensions of financial inclusion in a single number lying between 0 and 1. The proposed index is easy to compute and is comparable across economies and over time. It is unit-free, monotonous and homogeneous.
 
 
Keywords: Financial inclusion, IFI, multi-dimensional index, Euclidean distance
