Ranking is based on a novel technique which, unlike previous techniques, has the following unique features:
Objectivity: No manipulation of weights: the weighting is a resolutely clear objective since it emanates from the content information of the variables themselves and their internal dynamics. This last feature of the model is a major step forward and is a major improvement over current method in terms of ranking / aggregation.
Specificity: A specific equation calculates each individual indicator
Decision support: allows for the running of simulations and then proposes to decision makers’ plans of action and optimal sequence of reforms.
Early user uptake of CFAR-m has focused on data relating to multilateral organizations rankings of countries by the aggregate level of governance, institutional quality, poverty and human development.
