Worldwide Governance Indicators: Rule of Law Scores for 2007
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.
According to the regression equation, only Tunisia's predicted score for rule of Law (at -0.2) was close to being positive. However, it actually was positive 0.32, so the deviation from the prediction was 0.34.
The other five countries in Northern Africa earned negative predictions but Egypt and Morocco performed better than predicted.
