  • Interpreting Graphs

    Countries on or very close to the line remain at the same levels between the two selected years. Countries above the line have experienced positive changes in, while countries below the line have declined. The coloring helps to interpret the graph: green – improvement, red – decline, grey – no change. Changes are marked green/red if it is significant (confidence intervals do not overlap) and substantive (greater than 0.05 for indices and 0.5 for indicators). Mouseover a dot to see the rating.
