Introducing the Revolting Index: the position of Ukraine #
Posted by Allen Mattich, The Wall Street Journal (February 25, 2011)
The Revolting Index of likely candidates for (un)civil
upheaval is composed on the basis of three equally weighted criteria: social
unfairness, propensity to revolt and trigging (in the last case the share
that food makes up as percentage of household final expenditure). In turn, the unfairness component is made up of three data series: Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index, UNDP Human Development Index and GINI Index.
Among 85 countries ranked in 2011, Ukraine occupies the 22nd dangerous position.
