- The red line measures deviations from predicted
values, which are represented by the blue line. Ignore

on Rule of Law from its predicted score.

Largely because of its large GDP per capita (inequitably
distributed from oil revenues), the regression formula
predicted a score of 0.95 on Rule of Law, but the country
deviated -2.11 from the prediction for an observed score
- Most countries in Middle Africa deviated below
