- The red line measures deviations from predicted
values, which are represented by the blue line. Ignore
the gap between the red and blue lines and concentrate on
how closely the red line centers toward 0. The closer to
0, the less the deviation of a country's observed score
on Rule of Law from its predicted score.
- The Czech Republic and Hungary respectively deviated
little (0.04 and -0.03) from their predicted scores (0.73
and -0.77). However, the positive Czech deviation pushed
its observed score slightly higher to 0.77 while the
negative Hungarian deviation pushed its observed score
slightly lower to 0.74.
- More than half of the Eastern European countries
deviated a good deal below their predicted scores.
