This is how it describes itself:

Iraq Index: Measures of Reconstruction and Security

The Iraq Index is a statistical compilation of economic and security data.
This resource will provide updated information on various criteria,
including crime, telephone and water service, troop fatalities,
unemployment, Iraqi security forces, oil production, and coalition troop

The index is designed to quantify the rebuilding efforts and offer an
objective set of criteria for benchmarking performance. It is the first
in-depth, non-partisan assessment of American efforts in Iraq, and is based
primarily on U.S. government information. Although measurements of progress
in any nation-building effort can never be reduced to purely quantitative
data, a comprehensive compilation of such information can provide a clearer
picture and contribute to a healthier and better informed debate.

Michael O'Hanlon spearheads the Iraq Index project at Brookings, with
assistance from Senior Research Assistant Adriana Lins de Albuquerque.
O'Hanlon is a Foreign Policy Studies senior fellow and recently served on a
U.S. government delegation to Iraq to review post-war progress.
