- 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.
- With the exception of Malta, Portugal, and Spain, all
countries in Southern Europe deviated below their
predicted Rule of Law scores.
- The scores for Kosovo are partially obscured.
Kosovo's predicted score was -0.45. It deviated -0.39
below that for an observed score of -0.84.
