- 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.
- For example, Benin's predicted score for Rule of Law
was -1.11 but it actually scored -0.56, for a positive
deviation of 0.55.
- In contrast, Nigeria's predicted score of -1.16 was
virtually the same as its observed score of -1.20,
resulting in a deviation of only 0.04.
- Only the Ivory Coast (Cote D'Ivoire) and Guinea
scored substantially less than predicted for Rule of Law.
Several countries performed substantially better.
