Political and social stability is related to the propensity of a government collapse, which can trigger unpredictable government’s actions and affect economical investments. 

We developed a model that measures the level of political and social stability of the countries. For this, we have identified key factors that can lead to social unrest, which can then translate to serious political instability.
Our model involves the processing of official data related to health, education, security, economy, environment and infrastructure. We analyze the evolution over time of selected indicators within these areas and calculate a global index that summarizes the results by country.

The selected indicators are objective, representative, auditable and comparable among countries, allowing to draw trendlines and to make quick comparisons.

The data corresponding to each indicator are obtained from official database sources.

Government Rating

The government rating quantifies the level of social acceptance and support to government’s policies. For this, we examine the number of indicators that improved during different government’s periods and calculate a global average. The results reflect the positive impact of each administration on the quality of life of citizens and their subsequent propensity to consent government’s decisions.

The values are calculated by taking the average of the positive indicators for each government period.

The scale goes from 0 to 100 the closer to 100 the value is, the better the administration.

The number represents the percentage of  indicators that improved during each presidential term. this measurement began in 2010.

The Government rating is calculated by grouping the annual results of the indicators into 4 main categories:

Positive: percentage of indicators that improved compared to the previous year.

Equal: percentage of indicators that remained the same compared to the previous year.

Negative: percentage of indicators that worsened compared to the previous year.

No data: percentage of indicators with “not available” results. For the result to be available, it is necessary to have the data from the current and the previous year to establish a methodologically consistent comparison.
