Indicator 7 - Good Governance

Indicator: the average of values of the six Governance Indicators of the World Bank
Source: World Bank
Year of data: 2008
Target: the maximum score corresponds with 15, on the World Bank scale of -15 to +15

 

Yearly the World Bank publishes the level of Good Governance, based on the assessment of six major issues:

  • Voice and Accountability,
  • Political Stability,
  • Government Effectiveness,
  • Regulatory Quality,
  • Rule of Law and
  • Control of Corruption.
The World Bank uses a scale of +2.5 to -2.5 for each item, so by adding up one gets a scale of +15 to -15. For the SSI these six issues have been integrated into one indicator, expressing the level of Good Governance.
