The KOF Social Globalization Index for Russia and other countries has three dimensions. First, it reflects the extent of personal contacts across borders via travel, migration, remittances, and other means. Second, it measures the information flow between Russia 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 Russia.
