    About {classification}


    The 2018 IIAG focuses on assessing country trends in the last five years (2013-2017), within the context of the last decade (2008-2017). Whilst a country can either improve or deteriorate over the decade, the trend displayed in recent years shows important and useful characteristics for analysis.

    Whilst registering improvement over the decade, a country can, over the last five years:

    Increase its rate of improvement;
    Slow its rate of improvement;
    Show recent decline.

    Similarly, a country showing decline over the decade can, over the last five years:

    Increase its rate of decline;
    Slow its rate of decline;
    Show recent improvement.

    In order to capture these ‘trends within trends’, countries are classified according to the direction and size of their annual average trend in the most recent five years, compared to the direction and size of their annual average trend shown over a decade.

    The time periods used for analysis are:

    Ten-year period: 2008-2017
    Five-year period: 2013-2017

    Where trends are static (show no change), the following classifications are applied: Static (over ten years) to decline (over five years): ‘Warning Signs’ | Improve (over ten years) to static (over five years): ‘Warning Signs’ | Decline (over ten years) to static (over five years): ‘Bouncing Back’ | Static (over ten years) to improve (over five years): ‘Bouncing Back’

    A 'No Change' classification is applied in three instances. 1. When the annual average trend is exactly the same in both periods (if annual average trend appears the same but a classification is given, differences will exist beyond the second decimal place). 2. When a country/group achieves the best possible score (100.0) in 2012 and in 2016. 3. When a country/group achieves the worst possible score (0.0) in 2012 and 2016. In these latter two, no classification can be applied as scores cannot go higher or lower.

    ‘Not classified’ is applied when a country achieves the best possible score of 100.0 after 2013 and maintains it until 2017, or the worst possible score of 0.0 after 2013 and maintains it until 2017, or country data is not available for 2008, 2013 or 2017. In these instances it is not deemed that the characteristics of the trends match any classifications.

    Public Perception of Overall Governance

    About Citizens’ Voices


    As citizens are the recipients of public leadership and governance, the assessment of governance performance needs to be rooted on results for citizens and cannot just rely on official and expert assessment data.

    MIF has been working with and supporting Afrobarometer, the leading pan-African research institution conducting public attitude surveys on the continent, and the 2020 IIAG framework gives these more prominence. Formerly scattered at various levels in the IIAG, citizens’ assessments of various governance components are now highlighted in a new, specific IIAG section, providing a comprehensive ‘reality check’ to complement the IIAG results.

    This section mirrors the IIAG categories and provides public perception data on the closest proxies to the IIAG measures. However, whilst these measures are available to compare across the IIAG, it is important to note that their scores do not form part of the calculation for Overall Governance.

    About this chart


    Radar (or spider) charts are used to plot one or more groups of values over multiple common variables. Each variable has its own axis, and all axes are joined in the centre of the figure. Data from a single set of results are plotted along each axis and connected to form a polygon.

    This radial chart compares the 16 IIAG sub-category scores in latest data year (2019) for the location of choice, alongside the African average scores.
