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 world regions. 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 of the countries that compose each world region.
The selected indicators are objective, representative, auditable and comparable among regions, allowing to draw trendlines and to make quick comparisons.
The data corresponding to each indicator are obtained from official database sources.
The following graph shows the percentage of indicators that improved, stayed the same, worsened, or for which there is no data, for all the countries that compose each region.
The Region rating is calculated by grouping the annual results of the countries that integrate it, dividing the results 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.
The regions are ranked according to their stability. Countries positioned in the first places are the ones displaying higher stability indexes.
