Second, it measures the information flow between Croatia and the rest of the world in terms of telecommunications through television, internet, mail, and other channels. Third, the index reflects the cultural proximity of a country to other countries via the access to international movies, music, and other media. Various measures for these indicators are compiled into one overall "social globalization" index for Croatia.
