The welfare index is one of the most influential indexes in Simcountry.
The welfare index has a major influence on the corporate welfare index. The corporate welfare index is directly responsible for the productivity in corporations.
The welfare index in each country is composed of several other indexes and is used in many game functions as an indicator of the general situation in the country.
The happier the population in the country is, and the better the economy is doing, the higher is the welfare index.
The index can fluctuate between 90 (and in some cases even lower), and 140.
The Welfare Index is taking the lowest value of several other indexes:
The Health Index
The Education Index
The Transportation Index
The Supply Index + 41
The Employment Index + 37
The Social Security Index + 38
The Government Salary Index + 27
The Consumption Index contributes between 0 and 8 point to the welfare index. It needs to be at a level of about 300, to reach the max effect.
The game level will increase the welfare index by 1 point, for each game level higher than 10.
Population transfers out of the country, cause the welfare index to be multiplied by a factor of 0.99 to 0.5 which is destructive. Read more about this factor in this document.
The new value of the welfare index depends on the previous value of the index, combined with the new value as computed several times each day.
Very low social security index and supply index can cause a very severe damage to the country. Make sure the social security index reaches at least 80 and make sure your country is supplied with all the products it needs and does not have shortages.
The welfare index is used in the computation of the corporate welfare index in each corporation in the country, which is essential in the productivity of the corporation. If the corporate welfare index is at a level of 120, the corporation will increase its production to a level of 120% of the base production level which is an increase of 20% without any increase in the number of workers.
Such production levels will have a decisive influence on the profitability of the corporation.
