The KOF Index of Globalisation is an index of the degree of globalisation of 122 countries.[1]:29 It was conceived by Axel Dreher at the Konjunkturforschungsstelle of ETH Zurich, in Switzerland. It was first published in 2002, and covered the period from 1970 until that year.[2]:46 A new version of it was published in 2017[1]:29 and 2018.[3]

The index is based on three principal criteria: economic, political and social.[2]:46 Unlike the Maastricht Globalisation Index, it does not take into account environmental factors.[1]:29
