How to Read this Scorecard: Each MCC Candidate Country receives a scorecard annually assessing performance in 3 policy categories: Ruling Justly, Investing in People, and Economic Freedom. For each indicator box (from top to bottom): the name of the indicator or policy, the country’s data, or score, indicated by a green or red line representing a passing or failing score. Next to the score, is the country’s percentile ranking in its respective Low Income or Lower Middle Income group (0% is worst; 50% is the median; 100% is best). Under the score/ranking, is the median score for the respective income group, above which countries have to score in order to pass the indicator. The white box represents a trend line of performance with each red dot assigned to a score on the vertical axis and the year on the horizontal access. The black line running through the dots represents the current year’s median. Data sources are below the box.
