Abstract
Using the methodology to construct aggregated indexes, we propose the creation of a standardization index, based on indicators related to the availability of standards, the use of standards and the resources allocated to standardization activities. We built the index considering nine countries and 11 indicators. The results show two slightly different ranks, with the best aggregated achievement in individual indicators or the most balanced solution. Both ranks are led by Asian countries. The discussion shows that some indicators could be improved incorporating the size of the economy and performing a sensitive and correlation analysis. We concluded that the methodology is suitable for the intended purpose, the results are coherent with the general appreciation and further studies revising the indicators are recommended
