November 2010


Description of data

Description of data

  • Failed State Index, 2008 data.

  • Uses indicator ‘Progressive Deterioration of Services”


Description of graphs

Description of Graphs

  • The data are for the most recent year of the indicator from the previous sources (each green dot is a country observation, the chosen country is labeled at its observation and four countries are highlighted: Somalia, Singapore, India and Costa Rica.

  • There are horizontal lines at each indicator going backward for Somalia (the minimum) and forward from Singapore (the maximum) and across the graph at the overall cross-national median and a vertical line at 2033 (25 years from the data).

  • The “maximum historical trend” is the linear extrapolation back from the current level to Somalia’s level of the indicator (the minimum possible) at the country’s date of independence.

  • In addition there are various scenarios illustrated, depending on the available data.


Scenarios

Scenarios

  • “Maximum historical trend” which is the “Value of Somalia at independence to observed value today” growth rate extrapolated into the future

  • The “fastest 20” extrapolates the growth rate of the fastest 20 countries in the data—which are also just based on assumptions, not really actual time series (and so overestimates growth rates for those recently independent countries)
