The user can compare the most recent results with data for 1995 or 2000, or the average for the relevant regional, income group. When a country seems to perform worse on a certain variable in the most recent period than in 1995, this may be due to two reasons:
- the country has actually lost ground in absolute terms, or
- even if in absolute terms the country has made an improvement, the countries in the comparison group on average have made a significantly larger improvement.
