What do the figures mean?

In order to compile the figures, we’ve acquired the raw data surrounding each variable and indexed each measure against a cross-continental average of 100. That means that each variable score is comparable to an EU average of 100. For example, Luxembourg’s GDP growth rate score at 146 is almost 1.5 times greater than the EU average score 100.
