How are the points at the score-bar calculated?

This differs from statistics to statistics. In some cases it is the percentage times 100 (such as in drinking water coverage). In other cases a assumed normal distribution has been calculated. According to the probability of a particular value the points have been calculated. For more detail please refer to the methodology. These points are translated into the score-bar, while the green part represents the points, i.e. the more green it contains, the more points.

Can I use the images (on websites, for presentations etc.)?

Yes, if you comply with the rules stated in the Legal Notice.

How can I interpret the numbers?

The best thing is to go to the glossary-section, which describes all statistics. The score-bar gives you an additional help. The more green it contains, the better the country performs in that particular area.
